I am 19 and just had tonsils and adenoids out yesterday. Probably the worst pain I've ever felt in my life. I woke up from surgery frantically crying. It was miserable then but I was able to take a little water and medication. Today I am unable to eat, drink or take medication. Ever time I try I feel like I am choking and have to cough it up immediately. I tried my medicine and it burned my throat so bad I had to cough it up and then blood came out as well. Worst pain I've ever felt. Ever. I called my doctor and he said to just drink water but it hurts even to do that so I will probably go the emergency room to get an IV to prevent dehydration tonight.
