A year and a half ago- I was 24. Other than my bad reaction to percocet, it wasn't too bad. The sore throat was only barely worse than what I got when I had severe tonsilitis.
A few tips-- keep water with you at all times. You also may want a humidifier. If your throat gets dry, that's when it hurts the most.
Carnation instant breakfast-- meal supplements. It has all the vitamins and nutrients you need, so your body can heal faster. It's also yummy chocolate or other flavors so you will be able to convince yourself to drink it.
Ice cream was actually too cold for me, but mcdonalds milkshakes also felt wonderful. Oh- and pudding
It was worth it for me. I do still get minor sore throats if I get a bad cold, but it's barely noticeable compared to what I used to get!

Yup, he took one look and said they're coming out! I'm scheduled to have surgery on Friday 10/5.

Jessica Dang it! I kinda thought that's what the doc would say. Better out than in. Will it be a one-surgery procedure or will you have to stay overnight? At least you will have time to rest and relax (and plan what you will be knitting during your recuperation) before surgery. Now don't stress over it (easier said than done I know) and remember you'll feel so much better after its all over.

Best of luck for an easy surgery and recovery. You really will feel so much better when it's over.

Good luck with the surgery! I had mine out at 42; and it was six weeks before I could swallow without discomfort.

YEEKS!

I think it's just going to be out patient. I had all 4 wisdom teeth out when I was 20 and I did well with the anesthesia and pain meds. My mom hopefully is going to be here. I may board the dogs again for everyone's sanity.

I would like to know how I can be sick on top of being sick? I left work early today just not feeling the best. Got home and crashed on the couch. Woke up at 9:30pm and my temp was at 101.7! Holy cow! I can't wait until this is all over.
