I'm having surgery a week from this coming Wednesday, and I seem to still be battling fevers, and on again/off again throat pain. My tonsil (left) is infected, I think...it seems to be oozing pus on occasion from behind the tonsil...I'm wondering if anyone else had this problem just before their surgery. My GP did a strep test a few weeks ago, when I was feeling the same way...basically like crap!, and the strep test came back negative...I'm hoping my ENT is still able to go ahead with surgery... I have my pre-op on Tuesday so will know for sure then...Is anyone else about to head in to the big Tonsillectomy or a recent recoveree and can offer some insight??
