... Thank you all for posting.. today is precisely one week after my surgery, though I consider it to be Day 8 since my surgery was in the morning.

It was, in fact, the scabs that were forming/healing on the back of my throat. After about two days of this pins/Shredded Wheat feeling, it went away for the most part. I was having some weird muscle spasms in my tongue and some random pains, but honestly, it went uphill pretty fast after this two-day crap period. I've heard from others that... (2 replies)

... My brother had his tonsils out a few years ago. He was 18. He remembers a few things, so it's been nice to chat with him about this. He said he drank Sprite as he was healing. He said it hurt a bit, but it numbed his throat and it felt better. I thought it sounded crazy, but I wanted to give it a shot. I took a SIP of Spite and I swear I saw stars! I thought I was going...

My husband had a tonsillectomy, UPPP, septoplasty and turbinectomy on Feb. 7.
