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.
