I was told by a doctor that I should get mine removed, but after some research I decided against it for now, I saw pictures of what it looked like afterwards and it made me sick, the back of your throat will get these huge black patches and it looks like cooked ground up meat, I imagine it will hurt like crazy, but my counsin's daughter had her's removed this last winter along with her alnoids and tubes put in her ears, and she acted like it was no big deal. I dont do surgeries at all cause of what I wrote in another post about
when they did my colonoscopy with absoutly no sedation, just a plain IV solution, and when I asked why, they said they felt like I was already taking enough pain meds and I told them that I didnt take my dose that day or the day before cause the directions for the prep told me not to, but they wouldn't listen, I should have pressed charges but I was so sick, I didnt even think about
it til after I healed 3 months later. I begged for nausea meds cause I was vomiting so much and the drive there and back was so long, and they acted like I asking for a narcotic or something, and then they told me they would give me a suppositorie and because I had a long drive back home, I couldnt take it right away, and I couldnt swallow a pill cause of the vomiting, so they finally got me a shot, and before the nurse gave it to me, I asked her what it was, and in a very stuck up tone she said "it's phenergan, your not getting anything else!!!"....I didnt understand her tone, I asked her what it was because I cant have compazine or reglan for nausea, but she was just so rude, it was the worst experience of my life.
Just make sure you talk it over with the doctors about
what meds you will be receiving and make sure you let EVERYONE know any allergies to any meds you have if you have any, and ask if you will recieve any meds if your severely nauseated afterwards and what meds you'll get for pain or for pain that's more severe that usual, but remember you may get meds in liquid form cause you'll more then likely wont be able to swallow very easily. Just dont wait til afterwards when your in severe pain and cant think right, and if your already taking narcotics on reguluar basis that you tell the doctors that so they know your tolerence to meds will be higher then usual, and that they'll understand cause some doctors dont care. But I'm sure you'll be fine, it's a procedure that they do all the time and I'm sure they'll tell you all the scary things that 'can' happen, but remember that most of those are extremely rare, they just have to tell you to cover their bottoms.
