Well I’m on day 12 now and I feel SO much better! This tonsillectomy is the best decision I’ve made-I can breathe better, I now don’t snore and no more tonsil stones, Yey!! The pain from day 5-8 was definitely the worst for me and it was extremely hard, but once you’re through those few days it just gets easier and easier. Just keep drinking water and eat as much as you can-little and often. I’m in the UK and was told to eat rough foods ASAP. I’m sure this helped my healing and I had no bleeding whatsoever. I only took paracetamol and ibuprofen as I’m breastfeeding and wasn’t allowed anything else! This didn’t help the pain… This forum has been amazing for my recovery, great advice and the happy endings helped me through those painful days!!
