hey, Im in day seventh of my post tonsillectomy , ill tell you a the pain has been sickening , but I reckon its due to scabs coming off , the official prognosis of this surgery is 14 days which includes complete healin. you have come a long way , its still much more for me to go
, stay hydrated , dryness irritates the open gash , water and other fluids you take mobilises the mucous , im goin thru the same and desparately needed to share, I cant do a thing abt the pain , other than the pain meds prescribed ,
PS: get a humidifier, it helps, try ice cold protein shakes, your body needs it , stay calm speak less , avoid an infection it can give you an haemorrhage ( you don't want that) and prolong your healing process .
god bless . hope everything turns out for the best
