Re: Anyone had their tonsils removed?
I was 20, and yes, it was painful for the first 5-7 days, but I lived on ice cream and sorbet while I recovered, lost 15 lbs, and hey, they give you percocet--it's not like you're stuck taking tylenol. It completely changed my life--since I'd moved after high school, I'd had recurring tonsillitis every 2-3 months. That was 12 years ago, and I haven't taken abx since. I'm honestly more scared of the pain of having my wisdom teeth removed.
If I did it now, I'd want to make sure someone was there for my kids 24/7 the first week so I could sleep/rest and recover. I'm not a very gracious mama if I'm in pain.
