tonsils grew back?

Does anyone know anything about tonsils that have been removed either leaving a bit behind or growing back and then further surgery needed?

I went to ENT yesterday and specialist did same thing as a chap had 6 months ago and gave me all clear, but this specialist is booking me in for an operation to repove what's there now as it's causing problems......

I was young and recovered quickly 1st time, but am very nervous about procedure, recovery and recuperation.

Anything would help.....

Re: tonsils grew back?

Oh, please read my post down the page a bit about rediual tonsils!
I had mine removed 24 days ago, and he accidentally left some in there. I have to make an appointment to go see another ENT to see what he says about it.
What kind of problems have you been having?

My mom had her tonsils out when she was 5 and they grew back so, at 11 she had to have them removed again. I think it depends on the person and how their tonsils are situated around the muscle.
Embrace the beauty of silent moments and simple things.

Re: tonsils grew back?

I had my tonsils and adenoids removed when I was 4, now at age 23, I am booked to have my adenoids removed AGAIN !! My ENT explained to me that because they are both lymphatic tissue, they may redevelop if they are not properly removed.

My doc has decided to use cautery (sp?) to remove them, because it allows him to get the majority, if not all the tissue, with minimal bleeding, which can sometimes obscure the view of the tissue.
