I had throat surgery to remove part of pallet and also sinus surgery. Where he was in there he also took my tonsils. I am in alot of pain. Nothing seems to help. The pain killers take the edge off and ice cream helps a little but not much. I had this done on wednesday and it is now saturday. I cannot wait until 7 - 10 days goes by. I am 43 yrs old and now know what they mean by it being harder on adults to have tonsils removed.
