Default Getting tonsils removed = like petting a furry kitten or feels worse than AIDS?

My tonsils are so swollen, they are like touching each other... can barely talk or eat.
But I am going to have to wait atleast a week to get them out.
What's the procedure like?

You big vagina. I had them out at age 18, it was nothing. I was playing basketball the next day, and eating lukewarm pizza.

It hurts like crazy! Imagine severe pain every time you swallow. Until you have this done you might not realize how many times you swallow in a day.

I was on pain meds for a week to the day and then boom, it didn't hurt any more. It took me 6 months for my sense of taste to return to normal as nothing tasted right and some things tasted horrible, chocolate for instance.

You'll get really tired of eating jello and chicken broth/soup. You'll want to not eat anything that can cause your wounds to open back up. Apparently if you break them open and hemorage you most likely will be making an emergency room visit and it won't be pleasant.

I had mine removed when I was 22. I was eating a porterhouse steak for dinner 2 days later.

The only part that sucked was about a week later when the incisions scabbed over. For about a day and a half after that it hurt like hell to eat anything that was solid.

Yeah, same here. I was told that my voice changed slightly, too. Although, my tonsils were some of the biggest the surgeon had seen in a while.

Yeah, mine was rough. I was 14, and I puked blood every half hour for 15 hours after the surgery. After that it wasn't that bad, just NASTY breath and hurty to eat really hard foods.

One of the nurses said a friend of her's got them taken out and she lost like 15 pounds becaus eshe couldn't eat regular foods.

I won't mind losing 15 pounds one bit - but I would hate not being able to eat/talk/or simply swallow saliva like normal.

The doc said it becomes more of an issue, the older you get - so like in your teens would be ideal. Sucks for me that I am old.

Mine were almost touching, the little dangly thing would always get stuck on one. I would get sleep apnea and snore incredably loudly, so they decided to take them out. I was 19 or so (whenever they had the blue vanilla slurpees). They caurterized the wounds closed, so everything hurt. Speaking, breathing, swallowing. My body stopped swallowing on its own. I'd wake up in the morning stuck to the pillow from all the saliva that I drooled. I lost a good amount of weight. I had to crush the pain pills up and put it in juice to get it down. Putting it in pudding or something prob would have been a better idea tho.

My ENT has been seeing me for most of this year every 3-4 months, and a month ago he said: "They're definitely not getting better, and I really don't want to have to take them out unless we absolutely have to because it isn't going to be pleasant at all. Lets keep looking at it, and just note there is a high chance we will have to remove them. For now, lets monitor them closely."
