Had a tonsillectomy yesterday... FINALLY!!
Surprisingly, things have been going pretty well so far. My right side barely hurts (which is where I had the really bad tonsil) and the left side is moderately sore. I have been drinking water like it's my job, and have a humidifier running constantly. I am hoping that it stays this easy, but from what I've read online, this is the easy part. Keeping my fingers crossed.
The doctor said my right tonsil was severely scarred and filled with pus/tonsil stones, whereas the left one wasn't so terrible (which was totally reflective of my experience).
It's amazing... at this moment, my right side hurts less now than it has over the last year. I am already thrilled that I had this done
