Re: Tonsillectomy, read if you are scared, its OK,
Thank you Dls! I wish I could have worried less before the surgery. It's hard to stop worrying, I know. But it was so simple and over before I knew it. You will be OK!
Day two post-op. ouch. Last night wasn't good. I slept too long and my throat dried out. Then I threw up around 3am, I guess I need to lay off the codeine for a day. It was too much for me. Today I have been getting by on tylenol extra strength gel tabs. They don't help as much as the codeine but really, I needed a break. I dont feel like puking again.
Although, in case you are wondering, puking was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be, didnt really hurt my throat. I just felt better afterwards and it was a bit of a relief.
Pain today sucks. It's creeping into my ears. But it's only pain and it will pass. My dad and sister visited me today and I was able to chat with them for a little while. My mouth is staring to taste really awful, too. But still, this is not the end of the world. I'll update agin. Stay hydrated!!
