I'm a 16 year old girl. I got my tonsils removed yesterday at around 9:00am, so it's been a bit more than 24 hours since the operation. Post surgery, I felt really loopy and dizzy due to the anesthesia and medication they had me on.
My throat has not stopped hurting. It is day 2 if you count the day of the surgery. The pain medication I am taking really does not help. It hurts to swallow, talk, and eat. My diet so far has consisted of ice water, ice chips, apple juice, and a bit of apple sauce. Surprisingly, I am not hungry.
The pain is really horrible. I can't move without my throat hurting. My uvula is ridiculously swollen. I can also see the outside of the scabs starting to form.
Can anyone give me any advice?
Also, how is it when the scabs fully form and fall off? What should i do when they do? I really don't want to fool with them so they come off early and I bleed.
Hopefully it will get better, but I know it won't be good this week with the scabs.
Thoughts? And please share your experiences if you got your tonsils out as a teenager or are in a similar situation now.
