Question How Long does "scab sloughing" stage last from tonsillectomy?

I'm on day 6 of recovery and my scabs are trying to come off...how long does this nonsense last? To top it off, I can't take pain meds stronger than children's bublegum tylenol..even that makes me dizzy if I take an extra Tsp of it! any advice?
