... ss my anxiety to the nurses before they admitted me. This gave me my own private room, and a bed where they administered some pretty neat drugs to settle me down after signing some forms.

... reading your posts because I am a little ahead of you. My surgery was 2 weeks ago. I had no scabbing because the dr. used the coblation method. I did develop thrush after the first week.

... i know this is a popular subject, but i have yet to find advice that will help the intense bleeding that i have. i am 14 days post op, and yet every couple of hours or so, my throat starts to bleed again. mind you, it is not mixed into spit, it is pure blood, like the worst nosebleed you have ever had, the kind that just goes *dripdripdripdrip*, last night i was in the...

... Have your DR rule out Thrush (mouth infection). I'd also immediately take some probiotics (or eat yogurt with active cultures) to help in case it's due to an imbalance from the antibiotics you took for the tonsillectomy. If that seems to relieve it, it's useful diagnostic info. (1 replies)

... I still had some scab left over at the 2 week mark, but it was looking significantly better by that point. If there's still a lot of white patches that don't seem to be slowly sloughing off and disappearing, it might be thrush. Check into that and if you feel it's a possibility, I would check with your ENT. Try not to panic yet, these things take time to heal. I'm over 3... (2 replies)
