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.

... 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. Healing has gone well as far as swallowing, eating, etc, with the usual pain that one would expect (I don't mean that to sound harsh, I had the same surgeries in October - just trying to be brief).
