    Sunday 26th September - Day 6

    Woke up with another painful throat, i'm really dreading waking up in the mornings. my throat healing proress has seemed to have platued (staying the same). there's not much diference i'm seeing day by day now. my uluva is still swollen. will have loads of icecream today. hopefully i will not experience any bleeding too, yesterday night was scary. i had the lie down and keep my neck elevated as well as applying a cold ice pack which i don't think is a good idea because u have your carcoid artery there, just wanna get better asap. i'm slowly starting to eat solids but still wary of my scabs coming off. i've run out of pain killers to so will be surving on paracetamols. anyway enjoy my latest day 6 pic.

    they gave me paracetemol and a pain killers. they did not give me enough painkillers. i've already run out and its day 5. my tonsils started bleeding today as some of the scab came off, i was so worried. first time i'm having ice cream to soothe my throat.

    Saturday 25nd September - Day 5 (17:31)

    so far so good. i went for a 1hr nap and woke up with immense pain again. i'm getting sgarp on an off pan in my tonsils now and ear ache comes and goes too. i managed to eat vegetable and chicken without any hassle today which is a good sign. but after my nap i drank a cup on tea and had some cake and boy are my tonsils hurting. i've had to have some pain killers now and inshallah it will last until esha. i hope i do not wake up with a dry throat again. i noticed my mum and dad give me opposite instructions to the doctors. my mum is telling me to eat roti when i should have soft foods, my dad is saying don't drink too much water when i should be keeping my throat hydrated. i think thats the mentality of the asian culture. o yeah no sign of any blood clots at the moment. might post a pic later but if not then definently tomorrow.

    Saturday 25th September - Day 5

    just woke up to a very sore painful throat but this time my right ear is killing me. it takes a painful 30 mins of sipping water to ease the pain as well as 2 paracetamols. i was more concened about the blood clots i found yesterday and to see whether they have healed, and alhumdulilah, the blood clots are covered with scabs. i just want to be better and am fustrated with my progress even though i think i am handling things well. its waking up in the morning the most dreadful thing. as you can see in my picture some of the scabs are going but i have see that as a 'come and go' process, one day they're there, the next they are gone. really worried about having more blood clots, inshallah it will be minor, atleast i did not experience heavy bleeding. according to most people, after day 5 things get better, i hope thats true. check my latest picture.

    Tonsil Pain

    Friday 24th September - End of Day 4

    Well i was planning to go a sleep when i though let me see i've anything has changed in the tonsil area, and when i looked, i could see blot clots. i presume its from my scabs coming off but i've heard some horror stories about having to go into hospital to seal the wounds. i so nervous about going asleep as my blood clots may open up and i might bleed in my sleep. Also my uluva (the middle bit of the mouth that hangs out) is still swollen, its just not going down. this is more the problem the the actual tonsil healing.

    Friday 24th September - day 4

    I woke up with the most painful pain in my throat. could not sleep. keeping that throat dry is a killer. my scabs look a little thicker and the middle part of my throat is still swollen. slowly trying to eat some solids now. went juma earlier and was walking past some takeaway shops, i'm craving chicken and chips. Apparently it hurts when the scabs come off.

    I’ve woken up with the most unbearable pain you can imagine. My throat is hurting so badily. It is extremely dry and very painful to swallow. I keep on having water but seems to be having little effect. The problem is once you sleep, you cannot drink fluids so you wake up with the most painful throat. I have noticed that the thing we have in the middle of our mouth to help us swallow food is very badly swollen up. It’s the size of my thumb, you can clearly see the swelling in the picture. I still can’t speak properly yet.

    When people say day 3 and 4 is bad, believe me, they are true about day 3, but lets see what day 4 has install for me tomorrow. P.s. I will be posting daily pics up until day 7.

    the pic is 48 hours after my operation (start of day 3)
    the white stuff on my tonsil area are scabs, they'll come off in time as new skin is growing.
