... Hi! I am now on day 7 (VERY early in the am) post-op and I was woken from my sleep by awful ear pain. I can't even tell if my throat hurts because I'm so focused on the stabbing pain in my ear. I was given hydrocodon but I have a real sensitivity to that so - due to nausea - I had to stop taking it. I now take Tylenol which doesn't seem to do anything other than give me more... (1 replies)

... I'm 37 yof and post-op day 8-9. My tongue is still numb in the front half and my lower left lip is numb still. My tongue began to go "bald" and is continuing to worsen. I hope you have some success stories to post, because this concerns me, too. Oh yeah, pain is still severe when not taking narcotics + naproxen. Still only able to eat liquid foods (soft foods still get... (2 replies)

... Hi There I really do sympathise with you. I'm on day 8 and I still feel grim. It feels like it is never going to get better. I can't even yawn yet so being able to I imagine is a step forward. I have a couple of nagging questions though.....all of my discomfort and pain is on the left hand side. My right side is fine. It feels as though something is stuck down the left... (6 replies)

... ... and I don't mean that the pain has killed me. In fact, I mean quite the opposite :D I've really struggled throughout this recovery period, as have so many of you on here and my heart goes out to everyone who's recovering.

... Hi sierra88 I haven't had to go to hospital (yet!) to be recauterized, however, i am in the midst of dealing with post-op bleeding...have had 2 small bleeds with the last one resulting in a big ugly clot forming in my right tonsil bed. Like you, I've been really scared to eat and drink as I'm sure that once the clot breaks off, I'll start bleeding again. My ENT told me to... (6 replies)
... Hello all, Well, feeling much better these days! Still have some pain, but very manageable. There is some scabbing deep in the tonsil beds.

... Hi tonsilfamily, I'm so glad your doing okay! Hang in there. My mouth was the same way. I'm now post-op 8 weeks and still can't talk loud or say quite a few words correctly and my mouth gets tired if I talk too much. You might try some mashed potatoes, vanilla yogurt, and vanilla ice cream. I had to eat that along with vanilla pudding for 3 1/2 weeks because of thrush. ... (2 replies)
... I found sucking on ice cubes/ice blocks helped stopped minor bleeding such as that. But if that doesn't help, I was told to go to the nearest ER. Clots of blood aren't good...I'd say go hospital...or atleast contact your doc to ask them. (6 replies)
