Do you still have your appendix and tonsils?

Had my appendix out in 2005, and still have my tonsils.

  • Appendix: Yes, still in me and still doing whatever it does.
    Tonsils: NO, they were in really bad shape and were nothing but big hunks of scar tissue. They were covering up about 90% of my throat and Dr. said they had to go very soon. I was 24 years old and had them out back in 2004. VERY PAINFUL surgery. I developed a yeast infection (thrush) in my mouth so recovery took a lot longer. My c-section was nothing compared to the tonsil surgery.

  • Still have both, but not sure how much longer I'll have my tonsils. They are VERY enlarged so my ENT (had my Thyroid removed last July) said that if they get any bigger they'll have to come out because they maybe another reason why I snore and have sleep apnea.
