I had my tonsils and adnoids removed 10 days ago, I started eating food again but after I eat or sometimes drink I feel like the food or liquid gets stuck in my throat. I also feel like its going to go to my ears. Is this normal? Or Is a permanent problem that I'm going to have.
I had my tonsils removed about 3 years ago (severely painful at the time of the op but the best thing i've ever done). I also had this strange sensation at the back of my throat after eating, the scar tissue was very taut and this felt a bit uncomfortable. it settles down in time and you soon get used to the "wide open space" where your tonsils were. Well done on having the nasty beggars removed! You will not regret it in time (i have had just one sore throat in 3 years).
