Re: rules for when having tonsils out

Your surgeon should really tell you this.
you can eat and drink what you want up until 12am the night before your surgery, after that you must fast until after the operation where you will be given food and drink.

Re: rules for when having tonsils out

I fasted until 12am the night before and my op was done the next afternoon.

Day 5-9 is the worst so I am told and I think I can confirm this because I am on day 6 and it is painful. However it's only painful if I let my meds wear off. If you stay nicely dosed up with the meds you should be fine

Tonsillectomy is a pain but it's not as bad as they say it is so long as you STAY on the meds.

Best of luck and keep us all informed of your progress
