Also im over weight so its a bigger risk and with my age. im 23. they said it will be a 3 to 4 week recovery OMFG that long?????????Im an addict adn an alcoholic and they are giving me morphine while in teh hospital and pain meds to take home with me im soooo damn worried about that.

It's riskier than it would be for some folks, but even major surgeries can be performed when needed. You can get through this.

Tonsils aren't in a wonderful location, so it's lots of antibiotics for quite a while - while your body tries to decide day by day whether to try to heal the surgery site, make some more blood cells (yeah, right) , or zone out to Disney re-runs.

You'll be ok....the drugs are scary, but as long as your mindful, you'll be ok...and surgeries are always scary...my family has a problem with anesthesia (we don't like to wake up)...so I understand the fear. In the end, we always wake up though, so I feel confident that you'll be ok too. Good luck!

With all these people dying + the worries about the OP, Dusty is right, you've been good! (toughing up so much!)

Hang in there, you'll get through this surgery and the recovery time!

I've had 3 bigger OPs, so I know how scary they can be.

I take it that your doc explained to you how the procedure and recovery will be?

What is good to eat or not? How (especially with your blood disorder) after a week or 10 or 11 days after the OP (when the scabs come off) you'll have to keep an eye open for any bleeding very few people have it though)?

You'll also need enough pain meds...

Always go in informed, but careful not to read too much especially horror stories (I've made this mistake before and almost wigged out feeding my fear with too much info on all possible bad stuff!)

It's good do be prepared but expecting the best to happen!

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you tomorrow!

Wishing you the best for your OP and a quick and good recovery!

You will probably find that they will sedate you as well as give you pain killers. This will make you very relaxed and serene so actually I think you will find it a welcome break from the norm. Just relax and put your trust in God and your surgeons.

Not to repeat what everyone else said but you'll be fine as a tonsillectomy is a very routine procedure with little or any

expected complications. The bright side is that you will be able to eat all the ice cream that you want and you will have fewer sore throats in the future.

Good luck and get well soon,

Brian

Can I just say I feel for you and your loss especially at this time with having an operation. I don't think anyone goes in without a few worries.

Anyway as Spaceman said you can eat lots of lovely ice-cream!

Be thinking of you

I didn't see your post until today- and i just wanted to say i'm thinking about you. By now the surgery is all done and you are working your way up to the ice cream others mentioned. ( personally I'm partial to milkshakes).

It sounds like you've found a way to get through what is clearly a horrible time with so many losses and now being pretty much sick as you recover. I hope for you that you can continue to find your way.

you mentioned the pain killers and being an addict. Are you afraid you will abuse the pain meds? Can you have someone else hold the bottle and give them to you as presribed? You mentioned that they will give you morphine- are you detoxing at the same time?

I don't know what to say so I'll be sending a cyber hug. mrs l
