Thank you, Brent.
I had had a hard time breathing since getting mono when I was 6 years old. We couldn't figure out why though, we thought for many years that it was allergies, but none of the allergy medicines I was on were helping me. So finally we went to a ear, nose, and throat specialist down in Duluth MN. We soon found out that my tonsils and adenoids had swollen while I was fighting the mono but had never shrunk back down, so they were partially obstructing my airway making it hard for me to breath. I spent lots of that summer in doctors offices, and with the ear, nose, and throat specialist in the hospital figuring out what we were going to do to make it easier for me to breath. We eventually decided that I should get my tonsils and adenoids removed, and since having that operation I've been breathing perfectly fine. Which is really nice considering that for cross country running I would like to have full access to my airway. LOL.
