Acute tonsillitis is like any other acute inflammation.Chronic Recurrent Tonsillitis
causes weight loss
If you have acute tonsillitis ,you must be having pain//redness
and inflamed tonsils//Swelling of Tonsils//Difficulty in swallowing//Neck Glands-Jugulodigastric enlarged. These symptoms have to be corroborated by Blood Investigations confirmatory report.
The ENT Surgeon usually will never attempt a removal of tonsil when it is acutely infected and inflamed as the spilling of localised infection into blood will lead to bacteremia//scepticemia and its fatal consequences.They usually administer antibiotics //NSAIDS and cure the acute condition and then do Surgery.
There are varied causes for weight loss.That includes from Nutritional deficiency
)to any chronic inflammations to even Psychiatric reasons.That needs a complete work up by a Physician .
Kindly take a Second ENT Surgeon's Opinion.
Wish you a speedy recovery.,
Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan.
