Had been suffering from tonsils stones for years but I was afraid of the surgery. Having elective tonsillectomy in your thirties was a scary thing. Saw many horror stories of painful recoveries. My first Ent scared me as to the risks. But I really wanted to get rid of my tonsils so I got a second opinion. Dr Debnath was very informative and realistic . Didn't use scary language but did put all the cards in the table. In the end I recovered In half the time predicted . The pain was easily controlled with the medication and I was able to eat solid food a few days after surgery. I'm am very impressed with the surgery. Especially after reading the stories of other people my age and how they suffered so much during recovery. I believe I was lucky to find a great surgeon. Very happy .
