There's no one any longer around for me to ask how young i was when i had my tonsils removed, 7? 8?
The reason I ask this is I just read article that tonsils are another source of "T" cells, a type of immune cell......Till this, I was under impression removal of tonsils had no effect.....Now I wonder.......steve

Still have em....but when I was younger like 10 years old or so, they talked about removing adenoids or something, I had swollen nodes and would breath through my mouth and snore....so they were checking for something causing the swollen nodes....but it just resolved itself.
