So I had my tonsils out FrIday, and the first one or two days I was miserable! I had so much phlegm and it hurt to even swallow. I also have a numb tongue! It's been numb since the day I got my tonsils and adenoids out. Is this normal? It also feels tingly when I push it against my teeth. This also happened when I went to the dentist once, but that wore off the next day. Also, I am fourteen years old.
