Years ago I think they used to take your tonsils out at a drop of hat.
My one brother needed his out. Mom said they may as well take mine out too. There wasn't anything wrong with mine. Maybe Mom got two for the price of one ;-)
Off we went. My brother's went well.
Mine - not so much. After I went home, I had to go back to get my throat cauterized because it wouldn't stop bleeding. There was something so wrong about that LOL.
