Today is now day 5 since I had my tonsillectomy and my adenoids removed, I knew there would be lots of pain and pretty much no eating but I didn't realize how bad the pain would be. I had my operation at about 8.30am and was getting in the car at 12.20pm and sent home with lots of pills. The pain medication worked wonders but now I have run out of them and taking plain old panadol, which helps but not too much, I cannot stand the pain anymore. Ive got white stuff covering my tongue which makes drinking water hard not to mention painful. I haven't left the house since I left the hospital and is driving me insane but I cant bare the pain long enough to go outside, and Im meant to go back to work on monday (i work as a coffee maker in a busy shopping center), not too keen on doing that. My nose has been blocked since I left the hospital so when I wake up my mouth is very dry and makes my throat hurt even more.

anyone got any tips for me?

thanks xo ^__^
