If it'd been just my tonsils, I'd be A-OK and probably eating cheeseburgers and shit like that. What's actually sucking a whole lot is the uvular surgery - I can't really talk, swallowing is mighty awkward (and occasionally leads to what I'm drinking coming out my nose) and is, all in all, quite a pain in the ass.

Also, I think my right nostril opening is now much larger than my left - unless I never noticed this before.

Man, this surgery is rough.

Just so you know, my best friend had her tonsils out recently, and it was considered major surgery all on its own. She couldn't eat anything remotely solid for several weeks, and lost a ton of weight because all she could handle were cool soups and tea, and at that, not very much of it.

So, I'm wishing you a safe and speedy recovery!

it's the re-learning how to swallow part that sucks the most.

I had this same surgery 3 years ago.. it sucks so much, but I'm here to say it'll get better. There will be a lot of TMI before you're done, but it will be done. And life is SO MUCH BETTER afterward.

Did they give you the lidocaine swish? I HATED that stuff. Wears off too fast and the taste is horrid.

I'm sorry. I'm thinking of you and your poor throat.

Eeep, that's not good. Is the liquids coming out of nose normal of uvular surgeries?
