Are You Glad You Got a Tonsillectomy?
I posted this funny picture on our Facebook page and asked readers who had had a tonsillectomy in the past four years if they regretted it. I got quite a response.
The question was:
Do you regret getting a tonsillectomy?
Tommie I have to agree with Crista Black and her son. While the recovery was hard, the only regret I have now is not getting it done sooner! I’ve never felt better and wished I had gotten it done as a child just to have saved me from the misery all those times I got sick!
Tonsillectomy Resources Hi Lisa- yeah it’s pretty rough but it will get better soon. It’s common to get pretty down toward the end- here’s a little something I wrote about that:http://tonsillectomyrecovery.com/depression-after…/
Courtney Think about this: you are in pain, on pain meds, not eating, and everyone around you is normal. Depression is only natural, just cry it out. Let it out. Feel it. Then you can buck up and continue being awesome at healing. Don’t feel bad about feeling sad. We all go through it. It is short term in the big picture.
KittyYes Lisa, it will end, but I remember the feeling of wondering. It felt like interminable intense constant pain and I hated it. But I’m so glad now and you will be too. You are facing the worst of it over the next several days so be patient and keep sipping water! Keep on your meds and sleep as much as you can (I know it’s hard). heart emoticon
Alison Rae Lisa, I was very depressed at the beginning of my recovery. Especially around the 1 week mark. It’s natural to feel that way when u r miserable and can’t do what u want to do. I could cry about nothing just because I was so emotional. Just let it out and know it won’t last forever.
