I am 20 years old, and I have also suffered from tonsil stones since like forever! I remember in high school I would always brush my teeth every morning, yet still have terrible breath!!! My dad would even ask me if I brushed my teeth! How embarrassing! I could squeeze my tonsils every morning with a q-tip and I'd always pop out a tonsil stone, or gross *** white fluid that tasted like ***. Long story short, I went to my ENT and told him my problem. I first got put on an antibiotic, but that didn't help. So a year later I was totally done with these damn stones, so I went back. He said he'd then suggest a tonsillectomy, and I was like yes please! I was quite terrified that I was going to die just to remove my stones, because I never had sore throats! Only tonsil stones. But I just couldn't tolerate them anymore.
Sooooo! Yesterday I had my tonsillectomy!!! People would tell me to gargle mouthwash and stuff, but nothing worked! I even brushed my teeth so hard and much I have receding gums at 20
Let's get back on topic! So no more tonsils yay!!!!! I was terrified and shaking because it was my first surgery, but they drugged me up quickly on the table, and they were very nice. I remember after waking up, I was like wow I don't have bad breath!
lol but please just do it! Stop suffering! Nothing will help. My insurance covered it because it is a medical condition.
Let me just tell you.... I am suffering so badly
it's the first day after surgery, and I hurttttttt
my drugs don't helppppp at all, and I can't eat nothing but ice pops! I can't even drink! Talking is like impossible. But on the bright side, I am 5'2" and I was 160 but I lost four lbs already from not eating yay!!!!! Good luck and I will be happy if you have any questions because I shall do nothing but cry these coming two weeks
