I'm 15, I got my Tonsils and Adenoids removed this past Tuesday (11/27/07),

And I've been doing what my Doctor told me to do, take my medicine every 4 hours, they prescribed Hydrocodone and Amoxicillin.

And yes, I have been drinking a lot of water.

Well, of course I had problems breathing through my nose, and swallowing, but, when I was sleeping this Friday night, 3 days after the surgery, I swallowed something, maybe it was the membrane or that Grey stuff that was there where my tonsils used to be, but now I can breathe through my nose and swallow with a lot less pain.

I'm just wondering, what changed? What came out of my body that now allows me to breathe well.

Help is much appreciated.
