I just got my tonsils out. I'm in a lot of pain but I've been taking my pain killers. Could I have built up a tolerance? And now they won't work?
Tonsilliths. Greetings. Tonsilliths or tonsil stones are partially digested food particles that get trapped within the crypts and crevices of your tonsil. Beneath this food debris could be a mixture of saliva and bacteria which causes the formation of "microabscesses " within the tonsils. My pathologists often describe this very scenario in some of my tonsillectomy patients. See your ENT doc. It's time.
