Re: Scabs!? >> Tonsillectomy

Hi there, I think mine started coming off around the 5th day or so. It wasn't nice at all...I could feel them sliding down and I couldn't handle that feeling very well. I had to run to the bathroom each time I felt one and just throw it up, because I have a sensitive gag reflex. I remember I still felt some scabs coming off around day 8 or 9, but after that I didn't feel any more. They were the bottom ones.

Just don't be surprised the next few nights if you wake up in a lot of ear's your throat hurting because it's dried out from the way you breathe when you sleep. Sorry if I'm not being too optimistic, but really, these boards helped me out so much because I knew what was coming and what I needed to expect!

Hope I might have helped you some!!
