Tonsillectomy Update Day 11

Sorry for the lack of updates. I just haven't really been in the mood to blog. After day 3 things took a turn for the worse. I can honestly say that I have never felt such intense pain in my entire life. I woke up Wednesday night with nausea and threw up some blood, not fun. My doctor was able to prescribe me some anti nausea medicine which helped significantly, I was so thankful. Today is day 11 and I am starting to feel back to normal. I am able to go almost 8 hours in between pain medicine, versus every 4! So that is a victory. It still hurts to swallow (feels like a minor case of strep) and if I talk for more than 5 minutes it starts to swell up a little. But other than that, I really feel like I am almost through with it! If you are considering having this surgery and are over the age of 20, reconsider. Ha! Who knows how I will feel in a few months time, but as of now, I would never do it again. Thank you for your prayers! I so felt them. Now it's just a matter of getting back into the swing of life. Oh, and one positive of the surgery, as of this morning, I had lost 6 pounds, what girl wouldn't like that? ;)
