Re: Post Tonsillectomy: coughing, hiccups, severe ear pain!! HELP!

I just had my tonsils out a about a week ago. I am doing so much better so far. I still do get a lot of pain in my throat especially when I yawn! It is horrible. I have actually stopped taking my pain meds and have resorted to just Tylenol. But I do know what you mean about the hiccuping thing and the coughing! It hurt soo bad and I got the hiccups all the time like the week after my surgery and it was horrible. I also would wake up in the middle of the night and start coughing and it hurt so bad but I had to cough! I guess you just have to kind of suffer through the pain. I had a lot of pain in my ears as well... It basically gone now. I am just so happy that I am done and over with this surgery. I have my 2 week check up on Wednesday so hopefully he says I'm doing well!

Hopefully you start to get to feeling better soon!
