Helllo All, just a quick question. I had an adnotonsillectomy about 2-3 yrs ago at age 26. Within the last year I have had swelling in my throat. I finally went to the doctor yesterday (not the ENT) and she told me that it appears the ENT only removed the upper (or front) tonsils and not the lower (or back) tonsils and those are the ones that are very swollen. Is this common for the ENT to not remove all of the tonsils? Why? Does this mean I will need surgery again? I have since left a message for the ENT to ask about this. Any tips would help, thanks!
