Im 33 and just had my tonsils taken out Thursday October 23rd and let me tell you... Im still in pain. Im up all nite. Ive tried everything for the pain from sleeping with an ice pack on my neck drugging myself with all the pain killers i can find. Nothing works. I knew before i went in for surgery that it was going to be painful and that i wouldnt bounce back like a kid but i was not prepared for this. I know in another week or two i may feel better but ill never forget this pain. It hurts just to swallow my own spit. If anyone has any suggestions for me please email me. i dont know how much more of this i can take.
