Guys, I am due to have my tonsils removed Dec 15. but its not due to chronic tonsilitis or strep or anything like that. I have sever sleep apnea, and because like one person said, my tonsils are extremely huge, (like 3 times larger that they should be) my throat closes up when I sleep. I snore EXTREMELY!!! bad and loud and sometimes I gasp for air. They are also going to shorten my uvula (however you spell it) anyway that little dingly thing in the back of you mouth. and and do something with my deviated septum (lol). I'm bad with these terms. But I am sooo scared. And you guys have said how bad it hurts. I dont want to have it done.
