Re: Day 5 after T&A removal - manageable, not horrid.
I seem to recall that as I would heal, eating anything felt a little raw, so I would chase every bite of food with a sip of lukewarm water. Kept things hydrated and I could practice not having water shoot out my nose.
Sounds like things are going well -- staying hydrated, getting rest are the biggies.
I do hope you skip the ear pain. Didn't last long, but it was unexpected and I think I was just so disappointed because I felt I should be feeling better at that point (Day 8-9) and I was tired of being a slug.
I had mine out 7 years ago and to this day I still say it was the BEST thing I ever did, only wish I hadn't been such a chicken and had my tonsils removed MUCH sooner.
