I am 20 years old and had my tonsils and adenoids taken out six days ago, and three days ago my scabs began to fall off. My right side is still almost completely covered in scab. How long should it take the scabs to fall off? I heard this painful process should only last one-two days, which worries me because I don't even see the end in sight and its been three days already. Is this normal??

My scabs didn't start coming off until my 7th day, but I'm 38...just part of the left side.
Most of them were gone, both sides, by the 9th day...here it is day 11 and there's still a light veil of white back there.
It's not painful at all if you keep drinking, they need to stay moisturized so they come off gently and not in big chunks that could cause bleeding.
