: Im 16 and just had a tonsilectomy about 2 weeks ago..it was absolutely horrible. I went through so much pain. When your on the pain killers your still in pain, just try to sleep as much as possible to get out of the pain. I cant compare the pain to anything....just swallowing water was an effort...sometimes it comes out of your house..its hard to take down. the doctors say "drink as much fluid as possible"..but its not as easy as it soundas..i couldnt eat anything till a few days ago...my uvela was huge!! it felt like i was gagging on something all the time..and i couldnt talk for 5 days..well good luck with yours..my throat is finally getting better.
