I've been getting tonsillitis frequently for the past few years. I just had it a few weeks ago, and I think it's back already. It hasn't been suggested for me to get them removed, but I just want to prepare incase it's ever suggested. My daughter's 10 1/2 months, and she's still BF. I was planning on BF her until she self weans, but I definately wanted to get at least 2 years in. I just didn't know if I got my tonsils out, if the anastesia and pain meds would affect my still being able to nurse her? I didn't know if they would be safe for her or if they would dry up my milk supply? I don't think that I would do it if I would have to wean her. I'm not ready for that. I'm just tired of the constant stabbing sore throat. Has anyone had to undergo anything like that before while BF?

Thaks Sara. That information was very helpful. They haven't suggested me getting them out yet, but I keep getting tonsillitis so often, I'm afraid that they're going to. I just wanted to do my research first before I got into that situation.
