Hi everyone. I am 25 years old and just had a tonsillectomy 16 days ago. The recovery process was rough but my throat is doing much better. My jaw however is scaring me. I feel like someone hit the right side of my face with a metal shovel. My jaw began clicking and hurting on post op day 12 when I started chewing soft foods. Since, it has become more painful and the pain radiates down my neck and also up my face to my eye. My right eye actually burns from the pain. I am taking ibuprofen but it barely touches the pain. My doctor said at post op it may be tmj but just to give it time. I don't know if that means I will get better or not? Or when? I can't find anyone discussing such symptoms two weeks after a tonsillectomy and am just looking for support from anyone who may have gone through this. Thank you.
