swollen tongue after tonsillectomy and sinus surgery
August 2, 2011 at 11:46 pm
I am a healthy 24 yr. old female I had a tonsillectomy and sinus surgery 7/28/11. After reading a few forums I consider myself very lucky. I had previously suffered from severe headaches/migraines on almost a daily basis. I also suffered from a series of throat infections. I stayed sick and in pain on a daily basis. To say I was excited to have my surgeries would Tan understatement. No more trips to the doc.,antibiotics,HEADACHES and feeling run down all the time. I arrived at 6:00 am and was back home by 10:00 the same day, this was the worst!! Both of my nostrils were packed making breathing out of my nose impossible. I was extremely worried upon arriving home I would end up in the ER due to dehydration. I tried and tried and hardly got any food/liquid down the first day. Day 2 I had my packs removed and on the way to my ENT (10 min. drive) I finished an entire slimfast and no problems eating or drinking after that until today, day 6. Donít get me wrong, My throat has been hurt since day 1 but I have been better than most. Today I have been experiencing extreme throat pain and my tongue is extremely sore and extremely swollen. Does anyone have any advise for me??
