I am 31 years old and this is post op day 5 and this is the worst that I've felt so far. I can't open my mouth wide enough to see the back of my throat but I think I'm going through the scabbing process.  I constantly drink water.  Nothing else. God has really shinned on some of y'all being able to eat solid foods so soon.  The only thing I've been able to get down that wasn't some type of liquid was a chopped up hot dog today.  I can't wait until this time next week.  I'm so ready to get well and eat real food!
