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

today is my day 5, I was woken up by a sharp ear pain, actually i still feel the pain, initially it was on my right side, but i can feel it starting on the other side.And last nite I was coughing so much in my sleep it was'nt funny.Yesterday was so painful in general, even during the day,the pain meds does help me a lot though, I am using voltaren Setpille(this takes away the pain almost immediately and last for about 8 hours before you can feel pain again) and I am taking synap forte tablets also for pain.

My throat is so dry though and it makes swallowing siliva to be a mission,let alone swallowing other stuff.
