Tonsillectomy Post-Op day 2
Ugh, today's pain was horrific.
I slept through my 3 am dosing of pain meds, and that was a BIG mistake.
It took two more doses before the edge came back off the pain. Needless to say, all my doses were on time today!
I had a really bad case of the chills this morning, and a fever of 102. Went down to 101 after tylenol w/ codeine, then down to 99.9.
Called the ENT, he said not to worry yet.
Today I ate a soft boiled egg (half of one anyways; too difficult to eat) and a bit of cottage cheese. Also one of these Jello Smoothie things, which was really good.
The thing that is surprising me the most is my tongue; it is hugely swollen, bruised, and has a big nasty white/yellowish patch on the side in the far back. Talking is nearly impossible.
I did sleep most of the day today, so that did help. It was lovely, actually!
