    Re: Has anyone had their tonsils out?

    Wednesday 6th October – Day 16 (Final Day)

    Well, I can truly say the worst is over. Just a few scabs left, I was hoping for them to totally go. I just did Magrib jamat at home pretty comfortably but my brother said my voice seems a little deeper. I am feeling ok. To sum everything up, I would say that if you have persistent problem with tonsillitis them get them removed. It wasn’t as bad as it looks. Obviously you can imagine the pain by looking at my pictures but actually experiencing the pain is different. It wasn’t too bad. Days 3,4,5,6 are hard but after that you’re coasting. Thankfully I have a lot of patients, if you guys would like my diary and pictures by email then PM me, but I think its worth taking out. I feel I can breath easier and inshallah I will be having no sore throats. I thank all of you for reading about my tonsilectomy, below is my final picture which shows the scabs are almost gone, it doesn’t hurt at all, only when I yawn a little and also I have attached my victory dinner, chicken and chips and a bit of spinach and potatoes with roti, jazakallah again and that’s a wrap from me.

InshaAllah my random bout of sore throats was just a one-off and I don't need to contemplate having to have this done.

    Monday 4th October – Day 14

    My scabs are still not fully gone, very surprised, my throat has been feeling a little sore but I think its just the dead skin coming off, it still very red from inside. I managed to take a week off work to avoid complications. I not having any medication too, just trying to let it heal by itself. I just did jamat for magrib which went ok but you can still hear my voice is a little tender. its amazing how much i've healed when you look at my last few pictures.

    Sunday 3rd October – Day 13

    I’ve got a little sore throat today but I think that because my painkillers have finished, it's no major pain. My scabs are slowly going but not all of them are gone, it’s the ones I’ve had my eye on that are the last ones to come off. Generally feeling ok, I think I might take the week off work seeing though I need to raise my voice to my students and cannot do so at the minute. Once the scabs are gone a fresh layer of skin will grow. The middle bit of my mouth has shrink, hopefully by Tuesday I will recover and will stop posting the pics. O yeah, yawning is a little painful.

    Saturday 2nd October – Day 12

    Again feeling great, eating normal, however I did have a bit of a dry throat today but I think that’s due to my gym session yesterday. The scabs have reduced again but not wholly gone. Swelling is still present but not affecting me. Speaking is almost back to normal. Just thinking when I should return to work. I may take another week off to fully recover as I am a teacher.

    Thursday 1st October - Day 11

    Another fairly easy day, no pain what so ever, I can eat anything and talk as well even though it sounds like an apple being stuck down my throat. I do get sharp pains when I yawn but generally feeling good. The scabs are very slowly going away but its way slow for my liking. I had some bleeding too, very little though, one of the big scabs of the right side came off, so happy about that. I also find spitting a little difficult as my phlegm clogs up behind my throat and the muscle tissue is still a little weak to spit out. The swelling is still present as you can see from the middle bit of my mouth with the uluvu hanging but inshallah I’ll get there in the end. just trying tot hink whether i should go back work mid next week or take another week off. will be going to the gym tonight for the first time since my op too. enjoy the pic!

    my recovery has been excellent, i think i've recovered so well better compared to the horror stories i've heard on the internet. i started eating properly after day 7 which is a great achievement. i predict the scabs to be gone by sunday. i'd like to thank everybody for there support through my operation. inshallah i'll stop posting the pics soon when i'm better.

    i had some chicken wings today, tasted very nice, not chips yet. i'm saving chicken and chips for my 100% recovery day meal, on that day no one will hold me back, but alhumdulilah feeling very good at the moment.
