I am a 39 yr old woman who is being strongly encouraged by my ENT to have a tonsilectomy. I was leary about it before I stumbled on to this web sight, now I'm just plain freaked out. Besides what I've learned here, I've heard horror stories about vomitting up lots of blood. I can't imagine what that must feel like on the post operative throat. Do they give anti-nausea meds? And if so, do they work? I HATE to throw up!!!
