    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I am sorry, but I don't know. I don't have any information about you, your medical history, the type of surgical procedure used to remove your tonsils, and any other medical condition (like sinusitis, allergies, etc.) that you may have. My recommendation is for you to make an appointment with the ENT that removed your tonsils for a hands-on evaluation. The loss of the sense of smell can be unbelievably complex and be caused by many, many things. Just removing the tonsils should not be one of them.
