Tonsillectomy Recovery Day by Day




 Day 9

A collection of various experiences of adult tonsillectomy patients on their ninth day of recovery

From thousands of post comments to the tonsillectomy recovery forum, I have assembled a sampling of various accounts and impressions of tonsillectomy recovery for each day. Below I share comments about tonsillectomy day 9. These comments are taken from tonsillectomy patients who were kind enough to share their experiences to help others as they navigate the bumpy road of tonsillectomy recovery.
Many will experience depression toward the end of of their tonsillectomy recovery.

Tonsillectomy Day 9 : Thank you Lord!



Tonsillectomy Day 9 : Pain hasn’t changed, but something’s different. I’m going walking-So Day 9 was overall much better than any day so far of this recovery. But the pain came back tonight in force. Urgh. Back to the painkillers and junk TV.

Tonsillectomy Day 9 : My throat felt a lot better last night, it was moister and clearer than it has been in a few days. THANK YOU HUMIDIFIER!! The Tylenol I’m slowly easing off of, and the pain is almost gone in my throat. My ears still hurt, but definitely not that bad. I didn’t eat much today because of the panic attacks again, but I kept drinking through them because I know I need to keep a moist throat. I actually went out today!! I went to the mall with my mom which felt very liberating after spending so much time confined to my house.  The only semi-new symptom is stinging in my throat. Every time I drink water it stings a lot and I’m not sure why. It could be because it’s healing and still raw; but I’m not really concerned. My dad looked in my throat today and he said almost all of the scabs are gone. He did see a few small red bumps in my throat, but I’m not quite sure what they are (another question to ask my doctor about)! Otherwise I’m feeling okay today.

Tonsillectomy Day 9 : day 9 and today I was able to talk a bit without pain. I haven’t napped at all today and am fading fast. It was nice to have friends visit me but also exhausting.

Tonsillectomy Day 9 : day 9 (today i feel better again)I had bled quite a bit last night before I went to bed which scared me a lot because it was more than a tablespoon, however I kept rinsing my mouth with ice water and sucking a piece of ice and after 5 minutes it stopped.

Tonsillectomy Day 9 : Day 9 – hallelujah… feeling so much better in myself. My throat still feels sore and im still on my meds., but I find I’m not willing for the 4th hour to come to pop more in. It’s also a little easier to talk today (something I have not done for the past 8 day’s and believe me it’s been hard having 2 son’s 5 & 2yrs) I went to the doctors yesterday to make sure thing’s where as they should and all is well.

Tonsillectomy Day 9 : Day 9/10 is slightly better than the last couple of days. The white in the back of my throat looks a bit more transparent, so I think it’s slowly sloughing off. There’s a red rim where it used to be. Everything is still sore, but not as bad. However, my right ear and the area behind my right jaw are KILLING me. It feels more like an ear infection than referred ear pain, but my temp is normal, so I’ll wait to bring it up at my post op on Monday

Tonsillectomy Day 9 : first day I’ve spent most of the day alone. No much to report, but that is a good thing. My appetite is returning a little bit. I had some chicken noodle soup last night, and tried some mac n’ cheese for dinner tonight. It was a little painful getting tonight’s dinner down, but not to bad. Pain levels are still about the same. I tried talking in a fairly normal voice for a little bit today, but didn’t maintain it very long, it did get a bit painful. In the interest of tracking my recovery and health i will share the following story. Had my first BM in a week yesterday, was fairly constipated.

Tonsillectomy Day 9 : Day 9 and I am waking with a bit more energy.

Tonsillectomy Day 9 :Day 9: The skies opened, and the angels sang! I felt good! (by good, I mean much better than the previous 8 days, but not “back to normal”) I could eat, with some pain, but actually consumed a breakfast, lunch and dinner. I stopped taking Lortab and haven’t been back. This helped get my head cleared up, and also helped with my extended absence from the bathroom, if ya know what I mean 😉 I was able to do some work (from home) and really started to feel like myself again.

Tonsillectomy Day 9 :Recovery Day 9 (post-op day 10):
I have lost the majority of the scabbing on my right tonsil bed but my left side still have massive scabs. my uvula was so huge it was resting on the back of my tongue but it seems to finally be starting to shrink a bit but when i do talk it makes me sound a bit slurred. Pain today is not nearly as bad as it was during the first 8 days. Was able to eat 2 over easy eggs today

  1. Day 4 here and god I’m in so much pain 😫 I feel like the whole right side of my face is slowly dying, it’s terrible pain and the pain in my ears I wouldn’t wish upon anyone. I really want to feel better. I am taking a strong opiod and other analgesia from the GP, any help would be greatly appreciated!

  2. Day 9 today and I have tried eating fruit but can’t eat alot as it starts to burn but I can keep yogurt down well I’m a bit scared as tommorow I have a Christmas dinner to eat !!! Any suggestions for pain

  3. Going in to day nine after my left side tonsillectomy. Up until day eight I was relatively ok but now the pain is starting to feel like everyone else is describing. I thought I was having an easy time of it because only one tonsil was removed. I’m probably still not in as much pain as others who’ve had both taken out. But now I feel constant aching and a burning feeling also I think I had stitches that I wasn’t aware of as I coughed one out yesterday 😃 still got vile taste in my mouth and food is hard to swallow and my taste buds are shot! Still can’t sleep flat and can say that actually sleeping inclined does help. Definitely take pain relief even if you think it’s getting better,don’t be fooled by it , and plenty to drink. Although even drinking feels like lots of little knives in your mouth, having a dry mouth is worse. It’s a case of sleeping when you can.

  4. Tonsillectomy, Adenoidectomy Day 9 : God is good all the time, I’m feeling extremely better, finished the liquid Lortab Friday, been taking everything else since then, talking isn’t back to normal but understandable, was able to eat mac and cheese, grits, eggs, and ate chicken nuggets for dinner, scabbing on left side is almost gone, right still has a lot, still haven’t popped since i had a constipation episode (really wasn’t nice) yesterday, but overall feeling great, ear pain has subsided today, so has jaw pain
