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.
