Im a 28yr old mum of 2, who suffers from cronic tonsillitis. After spending the last 26yrs asking doctors to fix the problem, i have finally found a doctor who referred me to an ENT. The ENT took one look and quized me on why my tonsils hadnt been removed 20yrs ago. They are extremely large normally, but when i get sick it affects my ability to breath, swallow and eat. So far this year I have had 3 bouts of tonsillitis, each time lasting 3-4 weeks. The ENT will preform a tonsillectomy immediatley, but the cost is around $5000. I will also need to stay a minimum of 3 weeks in the city after the opperation because im at risk of hemmoraging after the surgery. I live 600km from the city in the outback, and the hospital here cant do the opperation. Im at the stage now where i need to get this done for my own health and sanity.
