A tonsillectomy is a very simple procedure. Although I understand your anxiety, it is perfectly safe. What concerns me is that your pediatrician has not addressed your worries. The important thing is to alleviate your childs' concerns, by being very positive and "fearless" yourself. Many hospitals let tiny patients visit in advance,to help relieve any anxiety. Everything will be fine. And she/he will remember what a great time they had being the center of attention. And of course, the traditional ice cream/jello menu...:) Could you also tell me if she (my 3 yr. old) will be catheterized before or surgery or after she is under??? I have tried talking to her but she has no idea what I am talking about. So she still doesn't know she is having surgery. I had my tonsils removed exactly at age 3, way back in the sixties. Even though my brother had them taken out at the same time and spent the recovery time with me in the hospital, I was terrified. It is probably my first true memory of childhood. When a final checkup after surgery was done, I managed to escape and remember running through the hospital hallways in my pyjama, trying to reach any door handle to just get out of this. The whole time I felt that doctors were a threat and that my Mom was letting me down. My parents could have explained better what hospitals and doctors are all about, but I suspect a 3-year-old will always be frightened. Still - it was the best choice to reverse a chronic tonsillitis that had spread to my heart. I have been very healthy ever since. All the best.
Removing your tonsils help air go into your body more easily and is a safe procedure to go through. If you have problems with breathing having your tonsils removed helps. Getting tonsils removed is safe and the only downside is that you will not be able to scream in a high ptched voice and will not be a ble to keep a note, not be able to sing very well anymore. B-EHS
The number of tonsils in the human body depends on what location you are asking about, but in the mouth and throat there are 4 sets; the pharyngeal tonsils, tubal tonsils, palatine tonsils, and lingual tonsils. If you are talking about other structures that are named tonsils, there are many others such as the cerebellar tonsils.
The three types of tonsils are: Palantine tonsils - These are the most commonly removed tonsils, located at the back of your throat. Lingual tonsils - These tonsils are located underneath your tongue. Pharyngeal tonsils or Adenoids - These tonsils are located behind your nasopharyngeal area, higher in your throat near your nose.
