Re: Tonsillectomy - Voice Change?
Well, my husband is a 1st grade teacher, and I had my tonsils out almost 4 weeks ago, so I asked him what he thinks. He said he would consider the following factors:
* your age (the older you are, the harder it is)
* what day of the week you would be going back (if day 10 is say..a Thursday, than only working a couple days to start as opposed to a full work week might be ok)
My worst days following my tonsillectomy were days 7 and 8. That is fairly common, as that's when scabbing starts coming off.
Personally I didn't go back until day 19. I am 37 years old, and I wait tables, so it's a tough job on the body. I know teaching is tough too, especially if you teach little ones.
I'd give it until day 14.
