    Oden's Tonsils

    Sounds like a line from a Will Ferrell movie but alas it is not...

    I hope this is the worst thing that happens while Greg is in Portland. The Blazers do not need another busted lottery pick.

    Re: Oden's Tonsils

    wow two weeks to recover from having your tonsil's out. I know when I was a kid and had mine out I was in the hospital for a couple days. But I thought that having them out now was pretty much out patient surgery now.

    I think it's a bit more difficult of a procedure for adults. Plus, having your tonsels inflamed probably lengthens the recovery time. I know that when I had my tonsels taken out, I was in and out in the same day.

    He'll probably be in and out in the same day as well. Just will take some time to get to a point where he can play. All that physical activity probably woulnd't be good for his recovery. I'm guessing you had some pain for a few days afterwords.

    I was way too young to remember, and I think my throat pain was offset by the shiny, new Lego set my parents gave me. I just know it's a big ole chore getting tonsels taken out at such a late age.

    Doctors will count the rings of flesh in Oden's tonsils after they are removed and will determine that he is really 35 years old.
