I had a tonsilectomy on Friday July 13th. I am 26 years old. The pain and discomfort are not at all minimalized by the meds my doctor has given me -propoxy-n/apap and an antibiotic. It has now ben 5 days and the pain and swelling increase every day, not to mention that my tongue is also very painful. My whole throat is covered with what looks like Bluecheese dressing. My doctor refuses to talk or see me. I am not a demanding person or rude. I just need some advice.I have never had ant kind of surgery or even been in the hospital. This is all very new to me. What foods should I be eating. I'm on my 5th day of clear liquids only. I tried mash potatos and scrambled eggs,but they are WAY TOO painful.
