Reader Story
I've had tonsillitis every few months for as long as I can remember. Now aged 26 and with a young child I was suddenly taken to A&E after a very bad episode of tonsillitis where I was physically struggling to breathe as my tonsils were so swollen. I decided enough was enough and asked my doctor ...

    I hope to reach as many people considering or recovering from tonsillectomy as I can to help guide them through the tunnel. It has been my passion and taught me more about compassion and the amazing strength of the human spirit than any other life experience. When you shine a light for others, you also light your own path.

Story
Tagline
A Tonsillectomy Recovery Patient Advocate, Author and Blogger
Introduction
In 2008, at the age of 44, I underwent tonsillectomy surgery. As I struggled to prepare for the surgery and recover from it, I was frustrated by the lack of quality content available on the internet for tonsillectomy patients.  I was also frustrated by the general public's assumptions about adult tonsillectomy surgery, and the lack of compassion from my health care providers.  I was ill-prepared and struggled through recovery with minimal support.  For this reason, I created a website to provide information to adults considering or recovering from tonsillectomy.  It was called, "My Big Fat Tonsillectomy."  I later added a forum where other patients could share their experiences, questions, pain, and compassion.

Owner called said would be there at 1pm. Went back, filled out paperwork and was told rate was $25. When I declined owner became hostile and threatening. Chased me out. Wow.

Scnikies! Amazing. The guy has mad skills. I did feel a bit violated by the experience but was assured that that was normal.
