tonsillitis
My tonsils were removed when I was about 2 years old, I am now 34 years old and the remnants are beginning to cause regular bouts of tonsillitis every 6 months over the past year. Do I have grounds to insist on a tonsilectomy with my medical aid?

Lynn, it’s a valid point, but you will probably need the ENT to write a letter of motivation. Good luck.
