| | Actual piece of tonsil came off today
First off, I had tonsillitis about 10 yrs ago and one of my tonsils, the right, never has fully gone down. I have only had them inflame once or twice afterwards and although the one tonsil is always sticking out a little (about a quarter of my throat), it never really bothers me. I went to an ENT last year and he said if it doesn't bother me, don't do anything about it.
Well, this past weekend, got sick. Not totally sure, but probably flu related. Got over it for the most part yesterday, except my throat was still very scratchy and felt bruised and my tonsil has been sticking out to at least where my uvula hangs down - half my throat, and also feels a little bruised. I have also had a lot of mucus in my throat. Today, I was trying to suck the mucus out (I know, gross) and a big chunk of something came out.....a tonsil. < edited > As soon as that happened, I actually felt like a hole opened up in my mouth and it immediately felt much better. I told my wife, she told me to gargle with salt water just incase of bleeding, but it pretty much feels exactly the same.
Should I be worried?
