Re: Tonsillectomy post-op: Day 7 - I'm in heaven!!

Hey nikkers,

You know, mucus has not been a problem for me in the least. I guess I need to be very grateful for that! Maybe the Thrush kept the mucus away! Hee hee!

I think the top part of my tongue has been sensitive from the thrush, but yes, how you describe the muscular tongue pain is exactly how I feel. Whatís up with that? Iím glad to know Iím not the only one. I would have thought that this far away from the surgery whatever they did with the tongue during surgery would be all better. Do you suppose the cracked corners of the mouth comes from it being stretched during surgery? I almost wonder if they donít just knock us out so they can be rough with us. I wonder how much care they tookÖ

Anyway, I am ready to sound more like myself, too. Iím tired of sounding like I am holding my nose!

Oh, I had half of a turkey and avocado sandwich today on really soft wheat bread. It was really yummy. Boy, I sure could use some nachos! I think I am having tortilla chip withdrawal!

Thank you SO MUCH for posting. You have made my recovery much more pleasant!
