My First Tonsil Stone Extraction

The first tonsil stone I've ever removed myself

The first tonsil stone I've ever removed myself





I would see the white things in the back of my throat every now and then, but I just figured it went along with my sore throat and was part of the inflammation... boy was I wrong. I finally discovered what these tonsil stones were and so, I decided to try removing it myself. I did...and was a little disturbed by the thought, that thing was jammed in my tonsil?!?!! EW! So, yeah. I'm going to try that oxygenating stuff...but maybe I'll just get my tonsils removed in the end.

Stephanie,

Congratulations on your first extraction! I hope you'll be able to get to the point where we can hear about your final extraction.

Your experience as well as those of others who have posted here make me thankful to have been part of a generation where after several sore throats and ear infections, tonsils were removed automatically.

Please let us know how things progress for you.
