So. Much. Pain.

Really.   Tonsillectomies are no joke.  I have to either be in lots of pain or hopped up on pain killers.  After several days on painkillers, I tend to feel like I’m in a cloud.  My entire day yesterday is in a cloud.  I finally gave in and busted out my Fentanyl patches.  My hope is to experience less pain without the fuzziness.  It will take a couple of days before it kicks in, but it makes me wonder – how does someone who doesn’t have access to the painkillers I do get through this?  I have great hope that it will begin to recede soon.  My doctor said two weeks of recovery and Friday will be two weeks.  Maybe.  Hopefully.  I don’t want to complain, but this is truly where I am and where I have been for the past nine days.  I’ve always tried to be honest on this blog, so there it is.

    So, so, so sorry for your pain. I’ve always heard that a tonsillectomy is far worse for an adult that for children. I pray the Fentanyl will help. Mandy says that it is stronger than morphene. Yuck. I’ve had that and it makes me throw up. I sure hope you don’t. That would be a disaster!!! We are continuing our prayers for you every day, for always!! Love you, BG

    Praying – I had a hard time after my tonsillectomy as a teen…..hope the pain recedes soon. Love you!

  3. There is hope! I’m on day 15, and so far there is no ear or throat pain today…even after breakfast. It stings a bit now and then….but I will take that over the pain any day! Hope you feel better soon!
