My husband reminded me, that although some (if not most) of these stories posted here are notable and real, it is still a small percentage statistically that experience out of the ordinary results from a tonsillectomy.  I think those who experience post-op complications are more inclined to go searching on the Internet for insight, leaving out a proportion of those who where back on their feet by two weeks post-op having no need for support from such forums as this.

I think it is good to keep in mind for those of us who have yet to go through with the procedure not to build up unnecessary anxiety.  The information here is still helpful and informative so as to keep watch post-op.

Here's a young man who made the news for his tonsils:
