Hi, I'm 19 years old. I got my tonsils removed on the 18th of December and now it's been 3 days since my surgery. I'm interested if anyone thought they had a bad experience with this surgery? I read on previous blogs that the 3rd day is the worst day due to inflammation and pain. Although I do have A LOT pain, the inflammation has gone down a bit and I find it easier to swallow. But yes I admit, the pain is worse than yesterday and the day before. I was also curious if anyone hadn't tasted any blood. Again it's only my third day but by the third day most people have experienced some kind of bleeding and I haven't. Did this happen later rather then sooner for some people? Everyone is different I guess. I find drinking water constantly and not talking helps the most. I haven't spoken In three days. If anyone can offer some advice that would be great.
