I keep reading all the remarks from people in their early 20's who have had their tonsils out. I just had mine out on 3/10/08 and I am 56!

hello, it has been a little over a month now. My yo hue sometimes hurt and is tingly. Not to mention, hard any taste! I have a metallic taste in the back of my throat as well. I’d say where my tonsils used to be... This is so depressing.

Hi! I'm 17 years old girl and I need to go to tonsillectomy next week. My friend told me that it's nothing dangerous but I'm still scared. He also told me that I will lose taste for a few months. Is it true that all food will be taste funny after tonsillectomy?

Hi there, I'm pretty terrified about the scabs coming off, I've read some good horror stories. ):
But it is day 7, if you count the surgery day, of getting my tonsils removed, the first day was alright, but the pain increased greatly on the 3-7 day today.
It isn't as bad throughout...
