I am 99.99% sure I have cryptic tonsils. I have been putting off going to the doctor mainly because I'm a little broke when it comes to money and paid time off and I am fairly certain that I will need a tonsilectomy, which I hear takes an adult about ten days to two weeks to recover from - plus a night in the hospital. Yuck. I keep putting off going to the doctor. Sore throats and inflamed tonsils aren't that horrible, right? But they're getting worse. Today I noticed that any time they get a sudden blood supply - like when I bend down or blow my nose - I feel like the back of my throat is literally going to explode. It's a weird feeling. Not exactly painful, but it just feel bad. Like illness all inside. I think I'll call the doc tomorrow. Maybe we can try a round of antibiotics before resorting to surgery.
I used to be kinda proud that I still have my tonsils. Not many adults do. Now I wish they'd been taken out when I was a kid and it only took a couple days to recover. Do you still have your tonsils? Has anyone had an adult tonsilectomy? How was it?
