Dry throat 4 weeks after tonsillectomy


I had a tonsillectomy 4 weeks ago, and recovered after about 2 and a half weeks. I was great for a couple of days, and only sore when yawning. For the past week my throat has been so dry. I have never experienced anything like this horrible dryness. Then because it's so dry I start to cough. I have started chewing gum, cough swets and drinking loads of water again. I'm also using a humidifier at night and this helps. Has anyone else experienced this? How long is it likely to last for? I haven't got worse or better in the last week and I'm afraid the dryness is going to stay....

Any words of advise or wisdom would be great.
