I had a tonsillectomy done 7 days ago using the Coblation method as my doctor said it had the fastest recovery time and the least bleeding. Days 1 and 2 were fine for me but days 3-7 have been extremely painful. Once I take my pain meds I'm fine and barely feel any pain but that window when the meds wear off and It's way too early to take the next is Hell!! I'm on 500mg of paracetamol +30mg of Codeine and antibiotics. My doctor said that eating proper meals each time I've taken my meds is very important and it speeds up the recovery time. I'm still so glad I've had this done as tonsil stones were ruining my life. Drink lots of water and eat heavy foods each time you take your meds like chicken and rice etc. Good luck!!
