Chronic Fatigue Message Board


Chronic Fatigue Board Index


I am a 35 year old mom and I am in my third day of recovery from a Tonsilectomy. My daughter (age 8) had the same procedure last year and was playing quietly the day after her surgery. She ate soft foods and drank liquids with no problem, so I figured if she can do it, I can too. I am in a little pain and I am taking 1 tbs of Lortab and 1 tbs of Tylenol Sore Throat liquid pain reliever because the Lortab alone does not work! I did not consult my doctor about this nor do I intend to, because he does not have to deal with the pain....I do. The Lortab is suppose to work for 4-6 hours...yeah right. I have to take the combination of the two medicines I just mentioned every three hours or the pain returns. For those who think this is the worst surgery they have ever experienced, I advised them not to have a deviated septum straightened. That was worse than childbirth, my hysterectomy and this tonsilectomy combined. I am at least able to sleep 4-5 hours pain free and I am eating ice cream, pudding, soft potatoes, soft eggs, warm soup (not hot), oatmeal and drinking juice, soda and ice water. Overall....it's really not that bad. Feel free to email me if you want additional information. [removed].com

Dear Panama City Mom,

I just read your message about your surgery and your quote about not having a deviated septum repaired.
Our 20 yr. daughter is having her tonisils out in June and then her deviated spetum repaired in July. I would appreciate any insight you may have regarding this surgery. She really does need it, but now I'm concerned. Thanks for your help. San Jose Mom [quote]Originally posted by Panama City Mom:
