Tonsillectomy scabs after one month?

Hello, I am 24 years old and had a tonsillectomy on December 3. I was pretty much fully recovered a week ago. However, I still notice some white stuff on the back of my throat where my tonsils used to be. There is still a tiny bit of itchiness and tenderness (especially when I yawn). Is this white stuff normal, nearly a month post op? Is it just part of the scabs that are still healing?

Re: Tonsillectomy scabs after one month?

Hi..have you had your doc check it out? Are the white patches easily removed with a qtip?

If might have a mild yeast infection.

Try gargling with salt water and see if that improves.
But I think you should still get it checked out.

It's all a matter of perspective!
