My son had his tonsils and adenoids taken out on Monay the 11th of this month. He is having alot of problems opening his mouth. He is able to eat but only small amounts and small pieces. He is drinking a good bit of fluid but I am not sure if he is having additional problems or not. Any one out there heard of this or had this problem before. Please respond.

Re: Help!

Sounds pretty normal at this point. The first 8-10 days are the worst. Very painful, very difficult to move the mouth.

Re: Help!

How old is he? Believe it or not day 5 is the absolute worst. Keep him drinking and keep the area good and moist--It hurts the most when it's dry. Also, chewing gum helps a lot.
