Re: TONSILLECTOMY questions and experiences

Day 8: Well, I'm on day 8 (including the day of surgery) and still not feeling all that great. Last night I managed to eat a bowl of Ramen soup, and again today I had a bowl. I am still having really bad pain though, particularly at night and in the mornings. I just woke up from a nap that lasted two hours, and when I woke up I was in excruciating pain again. I've started taking the Lortab at a 1/2 dose every two hours instead of a fulll dose every four, because it was wearing off too quickly and with my extremely high metabolism I was chewing through it in only an hour. Still pretty painful when swallowing. Looking at my throat, there's a little more pink but still a LOT of white. When will the pain end??? Pain: 7-8 (9-10 during worst points)
