In 2015 around Christmas time my tonsils began to swell over a short period of time, this was very painful and uncomfortable and eventually the doctor diagnosed me with Quinsy and referred me to hospital.

In hospital they said my tonsil needed draining, there was also talk of a potential tonsillectomy. They drained my tonsil but never removed my tonsils and since I have regretted never requesting them to do so.

Not only around two weeks later did I develop another smaller Quinsy, which actually eventually burst in my mouth, but ever since this I have had none stop flem and frequent sore throats and neck pain.

I feel asif the doctors should've removed my tonsils, what do you guys think? And also is it possible to just request for your tonsils to be removed?

    Usually they remive the Qunisy, because it is causing problems.. and not the tonsils.

      They did remove the quinsy. However ongoing problems has led me to believe that they should've also removed my tonsils to prevent it happening again, which it did.

      Should I speak to my doctor about seeing an ENT specialist, or can I simply book an appointment? Thanks in advance.
