So my 5 soon to be 6 year old daughter has been delevoping Tonsil Stones for a while now. We took her to a ENT doctor, he said it was to early to decided if it was a chronic problem plus @ the time she had fulid in her ears( infection that caused temp, hearing loss) so he treated her for that and said maybe it was related. Well its not she still getting them. And they can be pretty big the size of an ant (witch is big conserding its stuck in her tonsils) She gets them about once a wee it seems like maybe everyother. I know they are bothersome to her cause every time she gets a Chronic (Ahem ) throat clearing and sounds like shes choking when she eats. She does eventually spit them out once they become loose, shes giving them to me and has told me shes spit them out in class before. What im concered about is @ 16 after suffering my whole childhood with Chronic strep throat and getting scarlet fever (yea bet u didnt think that was around still 10 years ago) having them removed . My husband had his removed last year because of tonsil stones and a chronic mild sore throat. i know ur thinking well then just have them removed.. But it a surgey that requiers being put to sleep plus i know that tonsil take a big part in protecting a child immune system. Im sort of lost between here. Do i have them removed now or wait till shes older and see what happens to see if it gets better or worse. I just frankly dont know ? does anyone elses child have the same problemAnswer Question
