Re: Tonsillectomy, Adenoidectomy
Hey man, I just got my tonsils and adenoids out this Monday (6/24/2013). I also have been in the hospital with an IV (for 2 days). I'm 17, almost 18. Anyways try drinking ice water, it might hurt to swallow anything but you have to force yourself to otherwise you'll get dehydrated again. Stay away from any milk products like ice cream, just creates phlegm which makes it even harder to swallow. I know how bad it hurts, trust me. One thing that helped me was to cough up all the mucus, try coughing into a bowl. You might feel nauseous but you'll feel better once you get it out. I know its hard, seems like everyone tells you something different but it will get better eventually. Feel free to ask me any questions, I might have a few of my own lol
