:'( I am 50 years old and just had a tonsillectomy five days ago. The first two days were okay. I was actualy quite surprised that I did so well. However, the last three days have been hell. My ears hurt so badly. I am taking 3 teaspoons of liquid Vicodine every 3 1/2 hours, but it barely takes...
I am a 45 year old woman who had her tonsils removed at age 22. Two years ago I started developing strep throat infections again. I was scoped to be sure there was no residual tonsil tissue, my children have been tested and my dog treated prophalactically. Last year I was on antibiotics for 30...
