I'm 17 in 2 weeks and I've never been through this much pain in my life. I had them out on wednesday morning so id class this as day 3 since i went through wednesday aswell. I thought I'd be able to swallow just with great difficulty, but no, my uvula is so swollen that whenever I try to even drink water it shoots straight up my nose. I can cope with the pain, but its the constant spitting and the fact my thirst levels are hitting the roof. I managed to eat a few pieces of chicken on day 1 but since then I've had a mouthful of soup, tiny bit of ice-cream and barley any water. I can't swallow my meds which makes things worse, I feel like its gonna take ages! Parents keep telling me to be stronger, but there's nothing more I could do. I'd suggest if you don't badly need this operation then don't have it! I didn't need it, but I asked them to take them out as I had problems with breathing and food getting stuck under my tonsils, wish I never asked tbh!!
