In January just gone I suffered from my first ever tonsillitis which turned into a quincy, ended up in hospital for ten days in and out because antibiotics wouldn't work, I literally couldn't even carry out a swallowing motion (let's just say I went through a mountain of tissues), the pain subsided after a few days but the right tonsil never went back to normal (still covers half the back of my throat). I was told that I could only have them removed if I got four more bouts of tonsillitis or another quincy, which a couple of weeks later I did but the damn thing burst (pus blood the lot) before the gp appointment so he told me not to worry and keep an eye on it, still to this day half my throat is taken up by this monster, today after waking up for work my glands are up again on the right side and swallowing is a pain in the butt, my line of work I have to talk all the time and I'm really surprised I managed till the end of today, any how after that whole life story above I was wondering what I could do, through my work I have private health care, can I use this to apply to have my tonsils out or is this not an option on private health care?... And also another query I have a wisdom tooth on the same side as the problem tonsil which plays up occasionally aswell could this be causing the tonsils problem?
Many thanks in advance
