I was referred to Chicago ENT and Dr. T.K. Venkatesan because I had tonsil stones, an extremely frustrating condition, that likely occurred after years and years of allergy and sinus issues. My main problem is that they wouldn’t go away, I constantly felt like I had something stuck in my throat and these pesky white stones kept forming and making my breath smell awful while I was in the midst of planning my wedding. It was stressful and embarrassing, I tried everything and so did Dr. Venkatesan: sinus scope and full allergy tests. I was an educated patient and had done a lot of research around the issue and the only 100% cure was a tonsillectomy. I also did a lot of research about adult tonsillectomies because I’ve had family with really bad experiences and long, painful recoveries which is typical in most adults. Dr. Venkatesan advised that this would be our last resort because he too was realistic with me about the adult recovery process. Finally I decided that I couldn’t deal with it any longer and he agreed to perform the surgery. The operation was simple and surprisingly the recovery wasn’t nearly as bad as I expected. Not only had Dr. Venkatesan done an excellent job of setting proper expectations, but he has a great bedside manner with patients thoroughly explaining everything before and after and politely making sure you are comfortable at all times. Dr. Friedman, the Chicago ENT practice lead and owner also stopped by to check on me before surgery which was really nice and reassuring, something you don’t see in most city doctors. In terms of recovery, yes it felt like I was swallowing razor blades for a day or two but I followed all instructions, drank plenty of liquids before and after and took all my medication as instructed. This procedure only required two days off of work and then taking it easy with calls and working from home another week. I was easting/drinking mostly liquids and soft foods for almost two weeks and lost a few pounds. All in all, I think I went in with proper expectations and excellent medical care. Although I don’t recommend this surgery, I do highly recommend Dr. T.K. Venkatesan if you have to have a tonsillectomy or for any other ENT related issues.
