    3 days post tonsillectomy

    Hi All,

    Today is day 3 of having my tonsils out. I am 29 and had the old fashioned method of having them cut out then cautorized. I woke up after surgery crying cause it hurt so bad. The nurses were great and gave me morphine which calmed the pain. The worst pain still is every morning although I just started using a humidifier. Can anyone give me any advice? So scared of the scabs falling off. Ive been trying to drink 8-12 oz of fluid every hour although its so hard. i still have an appetite and eat anything soft.
