Tonsillectomy Recovery

Posted 06-19-2016 03:37 PM by Kaceyn1266

Hello Everyone! I am on day 5 of my tonsil recovery process and it has been anything BUT easy. Days 1-3 were a breeze compared to how I have been feeling recently. On day 3 I hit my hunger peak and could not take it anymore. I force ate mashed potatoes and wonton soup which tasted absolutely amazing. I certainly paid for that on day 4 when I had intense neck and jaw pain and my tongue was extremely swollen. I have also developed Oral Thrush which causes tongue pain and a white film all across the...

Posted 06-15-2016 03:41 PM by Kaceyn1266

Hey everyone-
Today, June 14, I finally had them take my tonsils out after getting strep 6 times last year. I went to the ENT who agreed the only way to stop this is taking them out. So, here's my story about how my experience was before and after the surgery! I got there early in the morning around 6:45, and they had me do routine paperwork and waited until they called me back to take my vitals. They make you pee before hand, which is difficult since you have to stop drinking after midnight....

Just over it already...

I was admitted to the hospital back in May for pneumonia for a week. Got out with anti biotics, steroids, and oxygen. My lung dr put me back on a 6 week prednisone taper starting at 30mg. I'm at 10mg and I'm getting shortness of breath again. to the point where I need my oxygen which I haven't had to use lately. I have major anxiety so that doesn't help at all. I also suffer from Interstitial Ling Disease and wonder if that's playing a factor. I'm just in a funk... my health probs just keep adding...
