I've had tonsillitis so many times over 20! Had them removed two years ago now. I still get sore throats but no where near as bad.
Have any of your children been tested for glandular fever? There is huge links with that suppressing immunity and making your ENT bad that's why mine was horrible. I too had apnea due to them. I will get my child's out even after 2 times if doctor recommends. Antibiotics ruin you more than surgery kimberlerygal!
