Someone mentioned that removing the tonsils can get rid of throat pain
associated with acid reflux.

Does anyone know if this is true?

Good Morning,
 
I had my tonsils out when I was 13 years old and did not develop GERD until I was in my forties.  The tonsilectomy was for repeated sore throats and it did help with that.

kevinla-

I had my tonsils removed when I was 31. Didn't change anything with my GERD. Have had it since I was about 17/18. It did hurt like all get out though. My daughter had hers out 10 days before I did and she was up and playing ball in 6 days. I was a complete different story. Solid 2 to 3 weeks of pain and a 2am trip to the doctors office to stop bleeding on the 8th day.

Take care,
Bill

I had mine out last year, I was 27. My GI said it might help my symptoms also. There wasn't a change. It was the worst surgery I've had out of 7 recovery wise. Awful.

I'm having a consult at the end of the month to schedule it. I've been patiently waiting since Oct, feels like a lifetime.

Had my tonsils and adenoids taken out when I was 13 (1998 I think?) but it was because it was believed the blocking of my Eustachian tubes were causing my hearing loss in my right ear. After the surgery I stopped getting sick but my hearing loss remained.

Was diagnosed with GERD in college (2004 or 2005, I can't remember exactly when) and LPR formally last month. Getting a Nissen Fundiplocation scheduled soon.

EDIT: Out of curiosity, any possible connections between LPR and hearing loss?
