My son is having his tonsils out next month. He has never had them infected but they still cause some big issues. For one, his enlarged tonsils cause him to experience apnea at night. They also cause him not to be able to breathe well after brief exercise. Eating is no picnic either. It makes him feel like he might choke. It is in his best interest to have his tonsils removed. A second opinion is always great....just keep in mind most insurance won't pay for the second specialist. So that would most likely be out of pocket. A better way would to have your ENT and primary doctor communicate and ask the primary doctor if he agrees with the diagnosis and prognosis. If he/she does not agree with the ENT then seek out another specialist for their opinion. I'm looking forward to the day my son will breathe easy, eat better, and get less illnesses as a result. Surgery is no picnic but the result is worth it.
