    I had a tonsillectomy 3 weeks ago. They say it is harder for adults and I believe so. Right when I started to feel better, I developed a sinus infection. In the last few days, my left side started hurting bad. I have ear pain and I can see some blood vessels in the area where my tonsils were removed. I called my dr. and got a nurse and she said it was because of my sinus infection and it is causing the area to recover even slower. I know I am recovering very slow compared to most adults but has anyone else had this problem 3 weeks after a tonsillectomy?
    I had my tonsils out in December I didn't get a sinus infection but it took mine a while to heal because they had to cut pretty deep it took about 3 months for me to fully recover.
