Im 19 and on day 7 of having my tonsils removed. This is the worst pain. I can swallow now but I have to take pain medication. The worst pain is from my ears and the floor of my mouth, the geniohyoid area. I drink water constantly but when I sleep apparently I'm not swallowing my spit because I keep drooling all over myself. When i awake I am in the worst pain. My neck is swollen and I cant breath properly. It's unbearable, I really can do nothing except sit there and try to control my breathing until the pain passes so I can at least take my medication. How long is this going to last?
