    Adult tonsillectomy - scabs

    Hello. I am 26 yrs old and had a UP3 (Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty) done about 10 days ago. I was prepared for the worst experience of my life...the pain was pretty bad but not to the point I was totally miserable. I feel pretty great and my pain is pretty much gone (just some discomfort). I keep reading though that this is something that happens and I won't feel so great again sometime soon? I honestly feel I could go back to work Monday instead of Friday as planned. I know everyone is different. My scabs also have not fallen off yet and it seems they usually do by this point. Will that just happen suddenly? Is it really THAT painful? I'm just curious because I expected the scabs to fall off by now and I'm worried about how bad it will be. Any input is appreciated.
