Re: advice after tonsillectomy
sorry mama that he's having such a hard time. My friends 8yo had this surgery a few months ago and I remember him having such a hard time for the first 10? days because it took that long for the anesthetic to leave his system. He wasn't eating or drinking or himself at all and was complaining of pain all the time.
I know it hurts to see him hurting, but sometimes there isn't much you can do. Keep him as comfortable as you can and try to keep him hydrated. You might be surprised how fast he turns around.
