Painkillers After Tonsillectomy
I am on Day 5 after my surgery and am in severe pain. I have read through most of the threads about tonsillectomy and have gathered that most of the posters are American. Having had my tonsillectomy done in the UK I was only given paracetamol and ibuprofen to take after my op, not even co-codamol. Everyone else seems to be getting much stronger painkillers. Should i ask my GP for stronger ones?
Also, where the white scabs have fallen off there seems to be now what feels like the ulcers you get if you eat acidic food or something, is this the case?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
