This may be a really bizarre question, but how many of us here still have our tonsils?
I had mine removed when I was 22 - I had developed antibiotic-resistant tonsillitis with peritonsillar abscesses . . . funny thing is, I was chronically sick (caught everything I was exposed to) up until that time, but I was rarely sick after I had the tonsils removed. Lupus symptoms started developing a few years later after my children were born . . . hung in diagnosis limbo for years, though . . .
Just makes me think and wonder if having extreme and prolonged immune stress followed by 2 back to back pregnancies may have triggered the onset? I think I need to ask my doctors opinion on this one as well . . . . . . . . .
Maybe I think too much, maybe I am grasping . . . I am just curious if anyone else experienced similar onset after having your tonsils removed?
