    Re: how do doctors open the mouth during tonsillectomy

    I just had my tonsils out yesterday and nothing that dhilip1 said happened to me. They put something in my IV and I woke up with no tonsils... no joke. So I don't know what they did. I do know that I had and still have since it's hard to remove black sticky lines from my chin to my neck where it seems they taped my mouth open.

    Thats all I know.

    It's probably best if you didn't know all of the process. It might scare you even more. All you need to know is that when you get to the hospital, they'll give you an IV, inject some stuff into the IV, and you'll fall asleep. And the very next thing you know, they'll be trying to wake you up because it will be over. That's all you need to know.

    You should concentrate more on how you'll work on your healing and recovery because that's the more important part. The surgery itself is the easy part.
