Anyone here had their tonsils out as an adult? I just got the great news that I am up for a tonsillectomy and I am looking for some info. Of course I have browsed around on the web and been scared out of my wits that it will be like gargling with broken glass for three weeks, tons of blood, unbelievable pain etc... Then I thought ask people you trust to tell you the truth. (I called them and no one answered so here I am. Just kidding!)
So anyhow, what's the scoop, anyone been down that road? What should I expect? What kind of time off will I need? How long off should I ask my hubby to take off? (I have a four year old to care for if he is not here so...) What kind of pain meds did you have and anything else you think might be helpful.
Thanks in advance. Corine
