It's possible that you do not have thrush. Mine was the same way after my tonsillectomy. I did my best to scrape it off and brush the best I could in between and over time it disappeared.

Re: White Tongue After Tonsillectomy????

I am just not sure
I did the rinse twice today and can I tell you that now my *()&#$&*()& tongue is hurting worse than my throat...it feels like it is slit wide open on the right hand side in the back where it connects to my throat.....
now I know what people said when they talked about it getting worse

Yes, I know what you mean. I think my tongue hurt worse than my throat. I had a huge blister on the side and anytime anything touched it, it would burn for a long time after. It will get better!

Have you tried just scraping it?

Re: White Tongue After Tonsillectomy????

An alternative cure for thrush is diflucan.. used to treat vaginal yeast infections in women. I took two doses and cleared up my thrush in 2 days. If the swish and swirl is burning ask for the diflucan.

Sincerely,
MG
