That is ridiculous in the true sense of the word.
Another excuse for unnecessary surgery on those who can't refuse on their own behalf.
When one of my brothers had infected tonsils, legitimately requiring surgery, the doctor convinced my parents to have all 4 of us cut on at the same time, saying "They'll all need it eventually so might as well get it out of the way." They chipped my tooth and then said it was my fault because I "fought the anesthetic."
That may have been the beginning of my understanding that too many doctors do what's good for them, not what's good for the patient.
In the above study, half were better after a year? So how do we know they wouldn't have gotten better in a year anyway? Why did the other half not get better after this surgery? More bogus "research."
Anyone know any adverse effects of having your tonsils removed? It's part of the immune system.
Yeah, you cannot trust Fox news on anything, they are pro-Republican/Conservative, therefore just part of the right wing conspiracy to keep us all poor etc..
I understand Dr. Chia considers tonsils removal as a common pattern of his ME patients. A regular surgeon response to chronic colds and throat inflammation in children. My tonsils were removed at 4 y.o., 35 years ago. I would expect more scientific research on the topic by today...
When I was in grade school I had several bouts of tonsillitis one year, two of them caused by penicillin the doctor gave me after I was well. The doctor wanted to take my tonsils out. I was very upset by and opposed to the idea. My parents did not have it done. A year later I had no problems.
