Day 7. Went less than peachy i can say lol. i was watching tv with my boyfriend when we decided it was time to get ready for bed. So i got up to do so, and was immediatly greeted by a freeflow of hot blood in my mouth. Panicing, i ran to the bathroom and started spitting blood. enough to fill a cup! My boyfriend rushed me to the hospital, and wouldnt it figure? it was one of the busiest nights the hospitals seens in months!

Day 6 Pt.2

Posted 06-16-2012 at 11:47 AM by Apache Kristy

Well the outing went surprisingly well! I tried a hamburger, and thought it was a bit rough, i ate it and enjoyed it darn it!! lol. i found that a Coffee Coolata with a Turbo from DunkinDonuts helped sooth my throat a lot, and was nice for a change. got a soft serve ice cream from DQ, it did feel good but was a bit too thick i think.

Tonsillectomy Nightmare -

Posted 01-03-2012 at 10:27 AM by Michelle990

The trauma started well before my surgery when I wasn't allowed any pills 10 days before your surgery. (As a person with anxiety, you never know how many pills you take until you can't wake them, lol)
Day of the operation, they wouldn't give me ANYTHING to calm my nerves...

Tonsillectomy Recovery

Posted 12-26-2010 at 09:39 PM by shmeelsybot8

So i never thought i would be one of these people to write about my experience with my tonsillectomy recovery, but now that I am going through it I completely understand why people do it. I am on my 6th night after surgery counting the day of surgery. Oh and I am 17 fyi. Today was by far my worst day, and I mean BY FAR. The right side of my throat feels like when you get rug-burn so bad it bleeds, and then someone poured lemons into the burn. I have had luck up till this point in that I have had...
