Quoting [♥]Mrs. Morgan:" I have tonsil stones. They're annoying, but I wouldn't have a surgery because of them. Are yours like gigantic or something?"
They can cause issues, I have had some huge ones dislodge and I have pretty much constant pressure in my ears and headaches that the ENT Dr. said is from the stones. But it is unlikely that her insurance will pay for her tonsils to be removed just because of the stones. I have chronic tonsillitis, my tonsils are a mess, the Dr. said they are pitted and full of deep crypts from years of tonsillitis scarring them and that wasn't enough to get mine removed. With my insurance you have to have over 3 documented cases of strep throat or severe tonsillitis within 6 months before they will even consider removing your tonsils.
