Question Just had a Tonsillectomy, question on the scabs.

I just had a tonsillectomy about 5 days ago, my Uvula's swelling has gone down a lot but not totaly, and I've taken some pictures for my amusement to see what it looks like, and it's kind of greyish looking back there, is that all going to clear up? I'm a slow healing person but I was just curious.

And another note, the side of my throat over by the uvula I have some white gunk looking stuff on the left and right, and I take it those are some scabs, they're starting to get irritating when my tounge hits it and it looks like it's getting ready to fall off soon.

Hi, you are correct the scabs are white(can be yellow) I had my tonsillectomy last week wed. I had scabs two days ago and the most have fell off, they leave a gritty sandy feeling in your mouth. How are things otherwise? I seem to feel terrible at night and a.m by mid a.m better...then not looking forward to another long night. Though my pain has gone down alot
