I had my deviated septum corrected, and at the same time had my uvula reduced(not entirely removed), soft palate reduced(also not entirely removed), and my tonsils removed about 6 days ago. I’ve been given a bunch of painkillers, a low dose of Tramadol and a high dose of Paracetamol. Drinking a ton of water. I can barely stay asleep longer than 20-30 minutes without waking up in incredible pain. Every time I swallow it’s intensely painful, like bees stinging the back of my throat.

Barely eaten anything either, lost nearly 6kg already. How did you deal with this? I feel like I’m missing something. I can’t even eat cold things without setting off the pain. I thought this would be achey and unpleasant, but that I’d get to eat a bunch of ice-cream and porridge and it wouldn’t be so bad. But wow, this it the most pain I’ve ever had in my life. Working through it but keen for tips on how to ride it out.
