Day 6 Pt.2

Posted 06-16-2012 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 -

Tonsillectomy Recovery

Posted 12-26-2010 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...
