Tonsillectomy Recovery :)

Posted 07-11-2013 at 02:56 PM by niccog26

On 4th July 2013 I had a tonsillectomy, at age 34! I wanted to write this blog to show that if you follow what the doctors tell you the recovery is much faster and not as terrible as the ‘horror stories’ make out. After all you only find the worst case scenario when you search online, who really posts a success story, right?!

In June 2012 I started with what I thought was a common sore throat. It lasted months and after numerous ENT and doctors’ appointments I was diagnosed with Glandular...

Days 14-16, Last Tonsillectomy Blog

DAY 9&10

Posted 06-21-2012 at 07:07 AM by Apache Kristy

Days 9 & 10, feelin good! Still taking the meds on time and pushin fluids (especially now that its 92F Degrees!) but im able to eat a soft Apple Turnover and some rolls and soft breads. I found that really moist Banana Bread worked really good and was very tasty, definatly a change! lol The scabs from my re-cauterizing are still black-ish, havent turned cream still. But its alright, give it time i think. when i went in for the re-cauterizing, the surgeon took all of the loose and old scabbing...

Posted 06-19-2012 at 03:26 PM by Apache Kristy

DAY 8. and i feel fantastic! honestly lol, no sarcasm intended lol. after that recent re-op where they fixed the bleeding in my throat, ive felt better these past two days than i have ALL WEEK. i can talk, i can swallow comfortably, its been great! I did have one issue, and it was the medication they prescribed for me (Hydrocodone-apap) that i noticed that every time i take it, either sides of my tongue go numb. i called the doctors and asked, but they said as long as its helping the pain and im...
