Re: tonsils grew back?
I had my tonsils and adenoids removed when I was 4, now at age 23, I am booked to have my adenoids removed AGAIN !! My ENT explained to me that because they are both lymphatic tissue, they may redevelop if they are not properly removed.
My doc has decided to use cautery (sp?) to remove them, because it allows him to get the majority, if not all the tissue, with minimal bleeding, which can sometimes obscure the view of the tissue.
