Karen, This is day one after my tonsilectomy and adenoidectomy...OUCH. However, I believe things will be for the best in the end after serveral years and dollars on throat infections. Can you tell me what to expect; like when (at @ what day) does the pain begin to subside? I work full time and was planning to take two days off and the weekend...now I am wondering if I should call me boss and warn I won't be in. Anything Advice would be helpful, I will take to heart.
