Re: Post Tonsillectomy Pain

You really need to get more fluids down. This is not a fun recovery and keeping your throat hydrated is HUGELY important. Keep up with the popsicles and any other cooling, soothing liquid you can come up with...ginger ale is great as it helps with stomach issues. Scabs will start to come off around days 5-7 and it is REALLY important to be hydrated then. And take your pain meds!
