2 weeks has passed, a short summary from my recovery

Today 2 weeks has passed since my tonsillectomy, I feel totally fine now, for a few days now I have been able to about my life as usual and eat whatever I want. On my fifth day after surgery I really regreted it, I could not belive that most of the pain would pass just a few days later, it felt like is was something I would have to live with for at least a month before I would feel normal again. Of course I was wrong bout that. On my tenth day I felt pretty much back to normal, I felt some pain, had to take painkillers about 3 times a day, but that was a lot less than what I had been doing before. I could sleep for several hours without waking up, and food tasted almost normal again. Now everything is fine, I’ve heard a lot of people say that you taste buds as messed up for a long time afterwards, but that was not the case for me at least. There is only one thing the is still bothering me, but that is getting better every day, and that is my low energy after the surgery. I’ll get exhausted, and start sweating just from doing simple housework, like vacuuming and doing the dishes. But as I said, it is getting better. All in all, day 1 was OK, painful but OK. Day 2 was OK as long as I took the painkillers as subscribed. Day 3 was when the real pain began. Day 4 was even worse, but I managed to get through the day just by taking one more paracetamol than I was supposed to.  Day 5 was horrible, that was truly the worst day during the whole process, I took 14 painkillers that day, I was supposed to take 8, and I could take 10 if I needed some to get some sleep during the night, but even with 14 painkillers the pain was horrible, I spent a lot of time in bed that day. Day 6 was about the same as day 4. Day 7 was when things started getting a lot better. Day 8 was quite good, i was taking less painkillers. Day 9 was the first day I managed to eat real food again, and I was so happy, I had to take 2 painkillers first, but it felt so good afterwards. Day 10 was good, I could eat real food, I was still a bit careful about spicy food and juice, but I felt quite good, I could even eat pizza (and of course I ate to much).  Day 11, I had more energy, stil not enough to clean the house, but I could sleep all night, and I didn’t need more than 2 painkillers that day. Day 12 and 13 were pretty much the same, not a lot of pain, and only one paracetamol in the morning. Day 14 I feel fine, yawning still hurts a bit, and so does sticking my toung out, but other then there’s not much to complain about exept from the exhaustion.


Hi there

Today is the 10. day after my tonsillectomy, and I just realized that i have forgotten to take my painkillers that  was supposed to have taken 1 hour ago, wich means that I’m in way less pain. Today I just had to get some coke, so for the first time in 10 days i got to drink a bottle of coke =D I also bought some chocolate, and it was so good, I finally got some sugar and caffine. I’ve also started smoking again without any problems there. Anyway, enough about food. Last night I fell asleep at 6 am, and when I wake up at 2 pm today I decided I had slept long enough already, but when I got up I was really dizzy and had a horrible headace, and I felt sick, kinda like an upset stomac. I guess my stomac got a shock or something since yesterday was the first day in a long time that I actually ate real food. The headace I guess is because I wake up a lot either because of pain (but I only woke up twice because of that, and all i really needed was some water)  or because my cat woke me up. The dizzynes I really can’t explain, it’s making my head heavy. It feels wired, but I’m sure it will pass by tomorrow. When it comes to pain and fever and all that, I feel fine, I don’t feel sick at all, and I am in very little pain so I think I’ll be totally fine by the end of the week. My focus is all off, so I think I have to go lay down now, maby it’ll get better. Sorry people, this seems like a lot of wining, but that is just because of the dizzyness, I’m really happy about being able to go about business as normal after only 10 days, I was worried it was going to take a lot longer.

Day 9 after my tonsillectomy

Tings are looking up! I feel great, I don’t feel sick at all, and today I ate taco, finally, some real food. I couldn’t resist it any longer, and it was so good. Acording to the information I’ve gotten I wasn’t supposed to eat real food for another 5 days, but I think I’ve been lucky with this, because now I am in very little pain, I’ve cut down on my painkillers and I still feel fine. I’m considering taking one more before I go to sleep, but that is just so that I might be albe to sleep all night, I almost managed to do that tonight, and I feel way better now, so I’m optimistic. Then there is that boyfriend of mine, I’m a bit wired about those things, I’ve kinda cut my self of from him now. But he’ll come visit me on wednesday, and then he’ll stay until friday, and after that he’ll be back again on monday and stay for a few days I think, or maby a whole week, but that’s a bit long, at least it is long by the way I look at our relationship now. I might change the way I feel about him when he gets back, but it’s difficult for me to be serious in a long-distance-relationship. I don’t understand how other people remain faithful, I’m not sure if I can, I mean, it’s not like he’s actually around. Hm, everyone thinks that that is a male thing, but I’m a girl, all the way, with tits and pussy. But I’m honest, and I don’t belive that we are ment to find one true love that we will stay with for the rest of our lives. Humans don’t work that way, we were never ment to be commited to one person, it’s not in our nature, and when we break it down, we are basicly animals.

Day 7

Life is great! I’m finally home again, my “foster mom” didn’t want me to go home before monday, but I just couldn’t take it anymore, I was going nuts. When I finally got back home again I actually felt physically better, the pain in my troath was suddenly 10 times better. It’s amazing how the environment afects the health, at least for me. Anyway, I’m home, I feel great, and now I’m going to sleep.

Day four

it has now been four days since my tonsillectomy, and I am bored out of my mind. There is seriously nothing to do when you are locked up inside for a week. I can’t wait until friday when I can finally go home. My boyfriend might get back on friday as well, but when I talked to him today he told me he wasn’t sure when he was coming. Anyway, even if he doesn’t come it’ll still be the best day I’ve had in a while.


I had my tonsils taken out three days ago, and it wasn’t as bad as I had thought, I was expecting not to be able to eat solid food at all for about a week. But the day after surgery I could eat white bread as long as Icut of the crusts, and yesterday I ate chicken, so I had anthisapated worse than what I actually got, wich is a good thing.I’m not saying that the recovery from a tonsillectomy is confortable, it’s not, it’s very painful, exept when the painkillers are at the most effective, and the fact that I’m a smoker doesn’t help, since I can’t smoke. Well, that’s not right, I can, but I shouldn’t because it raises the chance of an infection, and it’s going to hurt. I’m lucky though, I miss cigarettes, but I can do fine without them, the worst part is my never ending craving for pizza, spicy food in general, but most of all pizza.  Anyway, I’ll be back, specially now, since I’m at home in bed being bored, and my “foster-mom” or whatever,  she won’t let me out…. =(
