I'm wondering if anyone came down with their crohn's recently after a tonsillectomy...thanks for your input! :) If you had your tonsils out please specify when and how many months/years before a crohn's diagnosis or before crohn's symptoms.

Had Crohns for over 35 years, and still have my tonsils. If you are wondering if it triggered your Crohns, could be all the bacterial imbalance by using lots of antibiotics to treat the infections could have triggered it. Just a thought.

I had to have my tonsils out after being diagnosed with Crohn's disease due to the inflammation in my body. Constant inflammation in the sinus cavity and throat caused me to get several colds, sinus infections,tonsilitis, and strep every year. My ENT found that the tonsils were always inflammed when my crohn's was flaring and decided to remove them.

I had crohns type symptoms at least 4 years before my tonsils were removed. I never got any @#*$% icecream either .
