to traci and all the others with this problem, I am glad to know i'm not alone or crazy!!!I am 24yrs old and i can remember having this problem since maybe I was 6yrs old. They are absolutely gross and smelly!!!!! I had my adenoids removed when I was 11,but my ent did not take my tonsils,i wish he had. I went to see him a couple of years ago,and he showed me how to pop them out. I have another appt. soon because my glands in my neck have been swollen for awhile.
