Who has had a tonsilectomy? Please read?

Hi guys, I had my tonsils removed when I was 13 as i had ongoing tonsillitis every 8 weeks for 6-7 years. Surgery went fine. I've noticed since the removal of my tonsils I am never sick. No flu, no headcolds nothing! This is great obviously, I'm just wondering is anyone who has had a tonsilectomy experiencing the same thing?

    I had my tonsils removed as a child. I was sick constantly before the surgery -- strep throat, tonsillitis, intense earaches, fever, etc. I missed 20% of kindergarten and first grade. After the tonsilectomy, I was much healthier. I didn't get strep throat again until I was an adult and caught it from one of my kids.
