    Angry Tonsil Stones are RUINING my life!

    For those of you who know what tonsil stones are, you know what I'm talking about. It's embarassing to get close to anyone because they make your breath smell so bad! No meds get rid of these, I heard you can get them suctioned out, but where?? My dentist didn't even know anything about them! Also, does it feel like there is constantly something stuck in your throat???

    Have you tried nasal / throat irrigation using the Grossan Hydropulse.

    The throat irrigation tip on full power dislodged my tonsil stones. I use it every night now and they haven't returned.

    I know exactly how you feel. The only permanant solution is a tonsillectomy. I had it done in March and am soooo glad I did it. If they are at a point that the stones are ruining your quality of life you should consider it.

    I just tried to remove some with a q tip. I got a few, but I can feel more in there. Is it safe to remove these yourself??

    Re: Tonsil Stones are RUINING my life!

    I had a problem with tonsil stones. They are aweful. I hate them. They stink. Anyway, I was told by my ENT specialist that tonsil stones are just hardened pus. I was told that they can solidify completely into calcium too. I was also told that I may have tonsil stones because my tonsils are mildly yet constantly infected. Anyway, about 3 years it was bugging me and I have a girlfriend that I fell deeply in love with. I took my tonsils out 4 days ago. I hope this makes a difference. I didn't get an adenoidectomy, but I suspect that I may have had tonsil stones (or shall I say adenoid stones) comming from there too. I pray to god I never get them again!
    I would definately try another means than a tonsillectomy, but I never knew about it, and my GP said the only way was a tonsillectomy. Had I known about irrigations and the rest I would have tried it. Good luck!

    Alex
