Tonsillectomy Post-Op day 1
Pain is considerably worse today. Tylenol w/ Codeine barely takes edge off pain. My tongue is so swollen, and bruised, and very thick. The side of my tongue in the back has a patch of white stuff, just like the scabbing in the back of my throat where my tonsils were. Why would I have that on my tongue?
But, I am keeping up on my pain meds every 4 hours. I can't seem to sleep for more than 2 hours at a time.
Last night at about 1 am, I suddenly got very nauseous, and was going to throw up, but I literally willed myself not to, once I imagined how much THAT would have hurt! It took a few minutes, but the feeling passed.
I had jello this morning, and about 1/2 cup of yummy squash soup (lukewarm) for lunch, and a couple spoonfuls of mashed potatoes for dinner, but those hurt going down, so I stopped.
