I read your website re recovery from tonsilitus. it was so very helpful. I am a 46 year old male from the uk. I had coblation tonsilectomy 3 weeks ago. whilst it was very easy to eat almost imediately, I could not drink for 2 weeks! I went to the web to find others who had had it done, once i read about others I started to feel better straight away! lol! Its important to take the pain meds, I was taking Codine Phosphate, Paracetamol, and Ibuproven along with Diclophenic (excuse the spellig!) and could still feel it! After 3 days the pain kicked in, then it took 2 weeks to go. It does feel like its never going to go away, but have faith it will!
