I keep reading all the remarks from people in their early 20's who have had their tonsils out. I just had mine out on 3/10/08 and I am 56!
Yes the pain is awful, but I just keep thinking, why I had it done, and that does help.
I'm on week 2 and still can't believe I need the pain meds, but they have...

Hi, I'm on day 5 after my tonsillectomy. I feel pretty good, my throat does not hurt very much except when trying to swallow, but my tongue hurts really bad. When I look at it, it looks like there are two pretty big scars in it with white/yellow scabs, just like they kept the tongue down with...

Hi! I'm 17 years old girl and I need to go to tonsillectomy next week. My friend told me that it's nothing dangerous but I'm still scared. He also told me that I will lose taste for a few months. Is it true that all food will be taste funny after tonsillectomy?

My problem is that I still have this feeling in the back of my throat...
