Hi All, my post-op update - I’m 8 weeks post-op today and was feeling great after my left tonsillectomy / styloidectomy. The last 5 days or so I feel I have slipped back somewhat; I can still see a tiny white scab in my throat and it still feels like something is stuck in there, like a piece of popcorn that you can’t dislodge.
My throat seemed to be healing nicely now it feels a little raw and sore, I have developed an ache in my jaw/ear and my ear is intensely itchy at times. I seem to lose my voice for no reason at times, is this all part of the healing process? I was doing so well, and trust me none of this is nearly as bad as the pain and other symptoms before my surgery, just wondering if I should be concerned and contact my surgeon or just let things be. Anyone else been down this road post-op?
