I notice the SF Chronicle continues to report incorrectly that this young lady simply underwent a simple tonsillectomy. She had a tonsillectomy and uvulopalatopharyngoplasty.
This is what passes for journalism these days.
And I’m certain there is far more to this story than any of us will ever know.
I had this done 15 years ago and it was terrible. I bled horribly and still bleed from time to time these many years later. The tonsillectomy isn’t what got this poor girl. Prayers for her family.
I cant think of any local News Anchor who could say uvulopalatopharyngoplasty without slowing their read rate down to 33rpm, are they may still get it wrong, winning more ridicule. I studied to become a Medical Assistant years ago, and always had trouble with the word Sphngmomanometer; or Blood Pressure Monitor.
