Hi, I also have just had my tonsils out due to stones...it got infected after a week.  After antibiotics and penicillin I have now recovered thank goodness however I am worried as now I  have a very taunt piece of skin that leads from where the tonsil was taken out until the back of my tongue (R side) also my uvula at times feels like it has a huge drop of thick saliva hanging from it and I have to cough and swallow to get rid of it, I wonder if its because there is a lot more space there now?  I'm finding my voice also takes a time to warm up and am struggeling with some words at times.  I would like to read somewhere that it takes months for a full recovery as this doesn't seem too right.
