I'm 50 and I had my tonsils out on 07/11/2013
I'm a 50 year old female and I had my tonsils out last week. I was told it would be rough but I was tired of all the year of sore throats and ear aches. I thought you were only suppose to have thoe when you were a kid. I'm still recovering with pain pill and ice packs but I am looking forward not having ear and throat promblem in the future. I think it will be worth all the pain plus I've lost about 10lbs so far. I've tried to eat but it has cause pain so now I am taking the liquid approach. Good luck to any adult getting their tonsils out.
