Tonsillectomy
Nov 15, 2016
... Hi MSNik, Thanks for your reply, I really appreciate it. I'm 24 and thought I would be able to just man up and get through the pain but it's the complete opposite. I was only put on morphine for days 5, 6, 7 for the pain of the scabs falling off as it's apparently the worst part of it all (the whole thing is hidious). Numbing spray sounds AMAZING where would you get... (2 replies)

... 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.

I've been looking in the mirror these past couple days, and noticing that the sides don't look smooth like my daughters do (both daughters had theirs out).... (3 replies)
... 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)
