2. Oral painkillers. Must be taken with food. You can't eat without the painkillers. You can't drink without the painkillers. You can't swallow pills without the painkillers. The painkillers are pills. WTF?


I've never understood why doctors prescribed pain pills for this.  When I had my tonsils out 4 years ago, my doctor prescribed me liquid vicodin.  It's even thinner than cough syrup consistency, and was a whole lot easier to take.  I took the first dose while still feeling the effects of the surgical drugs, and then just made sure I kept taking them when I was supposed to, and really felt almost no pain.  The only problem was that it tasted bad, but my mom mixed it with a little cranberry juice and it improved quite a bit.  She called them my vicosmos.  Ahh, good times.

Teknowaffle: I used to get it all the time as a teenager. The worst part was that I would get tonsil stones all the time. I still remember wondering what the hard thing that came out of my throat was and biting into it.

Took a while to get the taste out of my mouth,


Well, not actual stones, but nasty chunky bits that would get lodgedin the big ole holes that opened up.

My tonsils disappeared right around the same time I stopped getting annual ear infections. I've never had strep throat or tonsillitis.

/never had them removed either
//they just up and left one day

As a side-effect, you would free yourself from the nastiness of tonsil stones.

Had my tonsils out a few years ago - that was not comfortable at all.  Stopped my snoring, though, which made my husband happy.

pro-tip:  do NOT get behind on the pain medication.  wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

/well maybe my worst enemy, but that's it.

I had tonsillitis about ten years ago...the antibiotics worked so I didn't need to go under the knife.

For those that have never had it, imagine drinking a cup full of broken glass every time you swallow. And then, you can't swallow anything at all. Good times!
