Adult Tonsilectomy

Hi There! I am a 38 year old woman having a Tonsilectomy on Sept. 1st. I have cryptic tonsils and am so tired of always feeling sick! My doc is using a cauterizing needle and says that days 4 and 5 are horrific! I am being given liquid lortab for pain. Any thoughts, suggestions and/or advice? I am FREAKING out!

Thank You!

Re: Adult Tonsilectomy


I think the old remedy for having your tonsils out is ICE CREAM ICE CREAM and MORE ICE CREAM!!!!!

I think the cold will help with the inflammation and the softness will help get the food down. You could also try cold fruit juices or popsicles.

Keep up with your fluid intake also, maybe drink some gatorade or even plain cold water.

Good luck and I really hope days 4 and 5 are not real horrible.
