Smile Tonsilectomy 36 hours ago, feel great ;).

Yesterday, 36 hours ago I had a tonsilectomy. Today I began to feel very livelly, except for throat pain when I eat I can move around pain free. I take codeine syrup every four hours, and eat within one hour of taking it. As of this evening, 36 hours later I can swallow any liquid with little pain. Is there a point at which I will come to a grinding halt with pain, or am I just recovering faster than a normal person. When I went in my oxygen saturation was 100%, lungs sounded good, low blood pressue, and heart rate was only 49. I am 29, 5'10, 210, and exercise 6 days a weeks for a minimum of one hour, does this come into play?

Also at what point can I get back to slow aeroibcs, I.e. walking, and slowlly working on aerobics machines?

Well it will get worse, and its great that your still feeling good. I would say most people are a little worse of than you right at 36 hours. Good luck with your recovery !!!

Re: Tonsilectomy 36 hours ago, feel great ;).

I am 5 days post op.. Feeling liberated and looking
forward to a new me!
So far the pain has been on a scale 1-10
I would say a 3.
I was scared and nervous but the possibilities
of living without those tonsil stones, gave me the
courage to have the surgery at my age.
I think not only drinking and staying on top
of your meds, but my surgeon also specializes
in pediactric ENT, I don't know if that helped
me with my recovery process, because really I
haven't experenced any really earth shattering pain, that
you read about . But again I am day 5 post op
I will post if anything changes.
