OMG for sure!! I went through so much of that stuff, as well as the lozenges (which kept my mouth moist).

Hopefully DH will get a good job soon with amazing insurance so I can try again to get my tonsils out. From what I have gathered in this thread (from most), it sucks, you lose weight 'cause you can't eat, but it's worth it.
Ugh, the tonsil stones!! Those were the worst! Made my husband gag like nothing else. hehe
