Re: Had tonsillectomy/uvulectomy on June 25th, anyone else recovering?

Hi I'm also new! I had my tonsils taken out on the 26th so I am on day 5. I'm glad to hear that everything is going well... but i have to say that this is the most miserable surgery i have ever had!
Days 1 and 2 were fine. i mean i had some pain, but it was nothing i couldn't handle! in fact those two days i drank and ate the most!
Day 3 that's when i started to feel pain... even through the maximum amount of hydrocodone every 4 hours. swallowing was torturous!
Day 4 was when the most excruciating ear, tooth, and jaw pain started up. i felt like i had two ear infections and like every molar had a full blown infection. i spent all night up last night trying to get relief!
Today, day 5 has been somewhat better than days 3 and 4, but still miserable. i'm absolutely starving! it hurts so much to swallow... i still can't speak, and yawning is excruciating! oh yeah and my ears have been aching every time i swallow! this is horrible!
i hope yours is nothing like mine!
good luck!
any advice would be appreciated!
