Re: post-tonsillectomy question - small bump
I saw my doctor today and he said the "bump" is from the tool used to hold down my tongue. he said it will go away. right now my tongue is pretty swollen and i dont' think i feel the bump, but it was very obvious when I looked in my mouth. You said that yours is "in the top of the 'pockets' where my tonsil used to be," and that's the same location as my bump. It looks kind of like a blister sort of, but it looks hard - it's so hard to describe. I'm sorry that your lump is causing such pain. I wonder if it could also be from the surgery tools. HOpe you get some relief soon. Do you see your ENT soon?
