Surgical removal of the tonsils and appendix associated with risk of early heart attack, study suggests

OK, this is a LITTLE alarming. I’ve had my tonsils removed, although I was about 15 at the time & I’m much older now.

Seriously, the only thing I don’t trust about any surgery is the anesthesia – unless it’s VERY mild, like when they went spelunking in my colon. The Versed was terrific.

Anyway, when & if my tonsils grow back, I’ll be Pro – Life & let them continue doing whatever it is they do. No getting anesthesia & going under the knife.

Just some semi – random medical – type thoughts
