Re: Please help me, do I need my Tonsils or Adenoids out?
Great big tonsils that make you snore and breathe thru your mouth all night can actually cause sleep apnea from obstruction. I would talk to your Dr about getting them out. If there is reluctance, having a sleep study done may provide the objective evidence for doing so. The IV is necessary, oxygen may not be needed, but like Titchou said, would be given by canula if required. The biggest proble with tonsil removal is potential post op bleeding, so avoid aspirin and antiinflammatores like ibuprofen for 2-3 weeks after surgery, or as Dr recommends.
