So I had a partial tonsillectomy 2 years ago in hope to cure my chronic bad breath. At that time whenever I touch the tonsils with my finger there was a foul smell. The tonsillectomy cured that. And I didt' remember to see those tonsil stones for months, and probably for two years. My bad breath was still there but seems better than it used to be. Btw, I had constant post nasal drips, stuffed noses, and later was diagnosed with LPR which I had no way to control.
My worst fear is that recently I found I'm starting to get tonsil stones quite often, like a constant thing. I'm still getting sore throat when I get a cold. And now I'm getting a cold my left tonsil is sore, and when I touch the position it smells so bad! worst, I spitted out two tonsil stones and it feels to have a lot more there. My inner ear were itching like hell for two months also.
Two years ago the ETN doctor who performed the surgery told it's not likely to grow back. I believe I'm still having tonsil tissure there anyway becuase it was a partial tonsillectomy which I didn't know before the surgery. And I do remember the surgeon told me after the surgery that during the surgery he found my tonsil tissues were scared and grows very deep what so ever. During a following visit he told me he tried to clear up things but seems didnt do a good job.
Does anyone has experience with this?
tonsil stones after tonsillectomy? What are the probably causes? what should I do now? Thank you very much.
