I'm sixteen and in my tenth day post-op, does anyone have any idea about when the scabs are supposed to come off? My throat is still feeling pretty rough, but thats probably due to the fact I just got done with a speech and debate tournament, but I heard the scabs came off after 5 days, and I've had no signs of them coming off. Also, I'm on antibiotics as usual, but I'm coughing up bacterial phlem, should I be really concerned about this?
Chances are, your scabs already came off for the most part. you may have some "stragglers", but usually they come off days 6-9.
You're pretty young, though, so you probably recover much quicker, with less pain, than us older folks! Haha!
Hmmm. Well, you will probably know when they wil come off. The pain intensity is on a whole other level. At least it was for me, and many others here. I can't imagine the scabs will hang on too much longer.
