day 20 after tonsillectomy - how long after do you keep feeling something???

I't day 20 here, I did pretty good thru the main stages. At day 20 I still feel what can best be described as a hair ball in my throat. I only notice it when I swallow something. Maybe still scabs??? How long will you feel something back there?

Re: day 20 after tonsillectomy - how long after do you keep feeling something???

I am 1 month post tonsillectomy and having the same issue. Like a hairball/popcorn kernal stuck on the back of my tongue in my throat. So irritating! My throat is also constantly dry, i'm drinking water constantly and using a humidifier when I sleep. Anyone know when I will be back to normal? Is this a normal part of the healing process or scar tissue perhaps?
