I’m a 36 year old female undergoing a tonsillectomy and turbinate reduction. I’m expecting to recover alone for the most part. This is my first blog, one which I am motivated to write for a few reasons:

  • To keep me mentally stimulated through this process
  • Inform others on some areas of recovery that I couldn’t find information on elsewhere, such as
    • Can you go through this recovery alone?
    • How to plan for recovery alone
    • Information about turbinate reduction in combination with tonsillectomy

I noticed that other blogs talk about recovery from multiple procedures such as adenoids, so when dealing with symptoms and pain, it was hard to tell which¬†procedure was causing pain or problems. I’ll do my best to isolate symptoms from both procedures as long as I know which one is causing it.
