Where did that light at the end of the tunnel go?!

Ok, so today has been pretty miserable. I started my day at 5.30am bleeding again so went to a&e but thankfully this time it was very quick was seen straight away as it was empty and the nurse practitioner had a look and believes it to be just a scab that has come off and that it was a small amount so sent me home. 215 more words

Days 6 & 7 - healing

I finally today feel like I am starting to heal. It is still pretty painful but again it is more my tongue muscle and the right side of my throat where they had to do a deeper dissection that hurt the most, but the painkillers numb this right down.  129 more words

Day 4 & 5 - back to the hospital

So, yesterday I thought all was going so well. Then in the afternoon my throat started to bleed so I ended up back in hospital. It is vital that if you have post op bleeding that you go straight to A&E. 143 more words

The second night and third day

Pretty much slept through last night, I had alarms set again for every 2 hours but I cancelled most of these in my sleep! I woke properly at 7am to take my tablets. 159 more words

Tonsillectomy

The first night

I got through the first night, although not pleasant it wasn’t so bad. I had read that it is a good idea to set an alarm for every couple of hours to drink some water to stop you from waking up with loads of saliva and drying out as well, also to just check for any bleeding that could be of concern. 160 more words
