I am just wondering... Who has had his or her tonsils and/or adenoids removed? I had them all removed when I was about 12 due to acute angina.

Still got mine, but was told they are huge the other day!  Not inflamed or pus-y  just BIG.

I had mine removed twice (world record?!) once when I was three and again when I was nine, because of recurring tonsillitis.  Apparently they grew back, maybe not all was removed the first time, but I don't know for sure. Big daddy not impressed at all - threatened to do it himself the next time on the kitchen table!

Sometimes I wonder whether it did any damage to my jaw, but what does angina have to do with tonsils or adenoids?

It's all connected of course, but there is a link between mouth health and heart health.

Of course all of this stems from diet and environment, with genetics playing their role too for sure but 99% of disease out there could be prevented and/or cured by proper diet and healthful living, of course certain genetic illnesses may only be improved but some can be overcome, we can flip the expression of genes as with epigenetics, through experience or biochemical shifts.  Structural or re-programming jobs are tougher too but not always....  Once the body gets to a certain point only so much can be done but don't know until you do everything and time passes.  Nerves and the spine and auditory can all be a @#&$ though eh.

I had my adenoids out as a toddler.
