Hi I am 17 years old and got my tonsils out on Monday, I am on day 7. My pain is still there it never went away. I am on codeine and it is really doing nothing for me. Ive been forcing myself to eat soft foods. Jello, mashed potatoes, cream of wheat & homemade chicken noodle soup. These foods are even painful to eat I couldn't even imagine eating solid foods. It hurts to even swallow water.. I still have the scabs in my mouth which if I might add taste HORRIBLE!! I've noticed some bleeding in my throat around the uvula and where my scabs are. It is not gushing blood but it is noticeable. It's that normal?
