I had my tonsils and adenoids removed 6 years ago, when i was 25. I had been prone to strep throat. (I typicallly got it at least once a winter.) And had been battling it that winter for 3 straight months. So after many different rounds of many different antibiotics, my family doctor sent me to a ENT to have my tonsils and andenoids removed. Since then, any sore throat I get hurts exponentially more than before the surgery, and in a completely different way. Where before, it would be just sort of raw soreness in the back of my throat, now it's sort of an open-wound type feeling from behind my nose, to my ears and down to the back of my throat. Also when I sneeze or yawn (anytime, not just when my throat is sore) if feels like my throat can no longer stretch...and that also hurts. Is this normal?
