Has anyone on here had issues with tonsils, especially during the school year? I got sick six or seven times this past year because of them and had to go to the emergency room once, as well as rush to the doctor three other times. I had to leave school early twice. I'm getting them out later this morning at 11:30. I was just very curious whether you have ever had problems with them during your teaching career and had to get surgery. I've only had surgery on wisdom teeth, so part of me is leery because of anesthesia and not being able to eat much for a week or so.
