Have you had your tonsils removed? How about adenoids? They're often removed at the same time.
Tonsils yes, idk about adenoids.
Still have mine
I was amongst the last who got tonsillitis and they removed them because that's just what they did. Now at least they give them a chance before they snip.
I was getting strep throat monthly for a year, so I had both removed right after my 9th birthday. Haven't had strep throat in the 21 years since.
