Hi I am 26 and had my tonsils out on 7/22 and it took about 2 1/2 week to feel completely better. The first week is the hardest. I did not eat for 6 days and when I did I started with scrambled eggs. For drinking I only had popsicles and some water. The operation itself was not as bad as I thought it would be. It took me 7 years of being sick and to scared to get them out but I finally had no choice. But I already see some improvements. If you have any questions let me know.
