I need a "It's going to be ok" thread (tonsillectomy/septoplasty)

I just typed out the entire last five days, but then erased it all. If you’ve been through it, you know what it’s like. And I have just survived the dreaded “Days 3-5.” I’m still not on solid food, but the pain has subsided a LOT.

I would LOVE to read some “Yeah, I went through it, it was pure hell, but it will get soooo much better from now on” posts!

The one thing I will say…after I searched the web and the Dope for stories before my surgery, I was in full blown panic mode. EVERY post was a horror story. But I’m actually glad I read those, because if I hadn’t, I would have called an ambulance to tell them to take me to the morgue.

My poor nose…it’s saying, “Hey! I got my deviated septum fixed during the same surgery and you didn’t even MENTION that!” Wah, wah, wah.


A friend of mine had that done a couple of months ago. It was miserable for a while but it did get better. He just got back from a lengthy camping trip.
