    Diarrhea after Tonsillectomy


    I am on Day 10 since Iíve had my tonsillectomy and have been making great progress! Yesterday I stopped taking my pain medicine (acetaminophen and codeine phosphate oral solution) because I didnít need it. Had my first regular bowel movement... However, that night I had stroganoff (first solid food Iíve had since surgery) and I had diarrhea. I thought it might just be a one time thing so I didnít think much of it. But this morning I woke up by bad stomach pain and have had liquid diarrhea three times already in the span of 3 hours.

    Iím just wondering if this is normal, maybe withdrawal from the medicine? Or my body getting solid foods again for the first time? Iíve tried to call my doctor but they were busy with another patient and Iíll try again soon. Thanks for any input!
