Re: Chronic throat problems
You have had quite a time with these tonsils. When tonsils get huge, full of "crypts" like craters, produce white chunks of dried pus, and block your sinuses from draining, it is time to get them OUT. The CT scan should rule out any peritonsillar abcess under the tonsil pushing it out. Most likely, you have chronic tonsillitis with pus filled tonsils that never clear up. This is quite common and keeps your immune system working overtime. Until you get them out, you will probably suffer with these frequent bouts of sore throat, swelling, and not being able to eat. I would find a good ENT surgeon in your insurance network and get on the schedule.
