Don’t Let Your Throat Dry Out!
Recovering from tonsillectomy is painful. There are things that will help reduce discomfort as your throat heals. One of those things is keeping your home at the right humidity. . We’re most comfortable in an environment with a relative humidity between 40 & 60%. This is true for most people, but when you’re recovering from throat surgery, it’s REALLY important. Anyone who has fallen asleep with their mouth open in a dry room knows how uncomfortable it can be. Imagine that feeling on a throat that’s recently been cut and cauterized! Ouch! It can be almost impossible to swallow, and swallowing is important for healing.
So how can you know when you’ve run that humidifier enough? Is it working? Here’s my tip:
Get one of these super accurate and super affordable Temp and Humidity Stations. It even has an alarm to help you remember to take your pain medication. It’s battery operated so you can take it with you wherever you’re recovering.
