    Adult Adenoidectomy question

    26 male, had my adenoidectomy (No tonsillectomy) 5 days ago, and I have to say the past 3 days I've felt progressively worse. The pain today has been quite significant. My mucus is foul-smelling, darkish brown, and I'm constantly hacking up phlegm. I just saw the Doctor on Monday, (2 days after my surgery) and he said that everything looked fine and there was no infection. I was also under the impression that recovery from an adenoidectomy is much easier and quicker than a tonsillectomy. I'm wondering if, anyone whose had an adult adenoidectomy, has experienced worse pain/mucus discharge around days 5 and 6, and if this was normal?

    I had both removed in one procedure as an adult but from what I understand, the recovery is about the same whether you have one or both removed.
