I am a 28 y/o female recovering from tonsillectomy surgery. I can tell you by far this is the worst thing I've ever had to endure. I am 9 days post-op, and while the pain is about a 2, I have this crazy feeling in the back of my throat that feels like I have a huge hairball back there (I definitely don't). I cannot stop retching, and despite all the water I've had to drink, it feels like there's not enough in the world (I've had approx 70 oz. of water today). My doctor recommended Mucinex, but it hasn't done anything to help. Anyone have any suggestions for clearing the back of my throat?? I am desperate.
