I am so happy after reading these boards. I've had smellly tonsil stone problems/odor and taste in my mouth for over 20 years. Last week for the first time, I got a flashlight and was able to dislodge about 4 stones - eeewwww, I know from the right side of my throat - little pockets. I will never have to put up with them again, I can't believe it took me this long to succeed! I am thrilled. :D
