Tonsillectomy & Lupus

Tonsillectomy & Lupus

Has anyone had a tonsillectomy at age 40? Recommendations, concerns, experiences? My tonsils are in very poor condition with chronic infections & pain. Dr wants to remove them.

My husband did & the older you get the more painful. But he's grateful he went ahead & had the surgery, lots of ear infections. Good luck to you & take care!

I heard sometime ago, Don Henley of The Eagles had bad tonsils and the doctor wanted to remove them, but he thought it would effect his singing voice so he took prescription medication when he needs it. I am guessing he was around 40 when that happened. I wish you well.
