Tonsils and HIV
      07/10/03 04:55 AM

Hi, I am not sure this is the best place to ask my question but I am hoping that someone else has had the same problem as me and can share there story and give me some advice.

I have had really bad trouble with my tonsils ever since I was about about 15 I am now 22 and been HIV+ for a year and I was wondering if I should have my tonsils removed, My doctor does not know I am HIV+ says I should, the ENT specialist does not know I am HIV+ said that they are not doing the job anymore and I should have them taken out, But my HIV specialist said that I should no have them taken out as we do not know what job they are doing controlling my viral load.

I am not on Meds I have a great CD4 count above 700. Has anyone else been in the same situation as me?

Please can you share you advice and let me know what you think is best.

Thanks in advance
