Tonsillectomy is one of most often procedures now days. However this procedure is not that simple and you have to understand that there are some risk involved in the procedure. You may have problems with voice if the surgeon accidentally hurt your vocal cords, for instance. Now the recovery form tonsillectomy usually takes up to four weeks. You are in your second week and you might be able to eat normal food but you have to understand that you will have more pain. You should be free of pain in the third week but your wounds won’t be healed completely. I hope that you find this post useful. Be patient with the recovery and you will be fine.
