Is it painful a family member of mine might have to get their tonsils removed because it is stopping them from sleeping properly or something?

Its bipolar, one day i could feel super great (right now) and tomorrow i could feel like total crud and cant speak, but normally its painful, but i got my removed because it caused ear aches and i got soar throats like 6 times a year, so im used to soar throats. and thanks metal.. i love it.. ice cream and push pops ALL DAY!:rolleyes:

I haven't had any personal experience but I know a few tips to experiment with during tonsillectomy recovery. Obviously solid food causes excruciating pain so avoid eating anything that takes any effort to chew and swallow. Constantly talking will irritate your throat too. You must give your body the opportunity to recover which means getting plenty of sleep. Hopefully you will start to feel better within the next week or so.

I got my "third tonsil" removed 5 years ago. It isn't the real tonsil but the operation has the same effects. After that the doctors have told me that i should eat ice cream and other cold stuff when the throat hurts me. I am not sure if you won't be able to talk because i was able to talk fine just a little bit quiter.

Having regular soar throats isn't good though. A close person to me always have one when she was a kid and she got rheumatic heart disease. (Mild one though. Still it hurts)

P.S. Prepare to get infections easily since it's one of the body's barrier to infection. AFAIk.

I forgot to take painkillers so I couldn't eat any ice cream.

Don't worry about the surgery, worry about the pain you'll feel afterwards. When I got mine taken out, I couldn't speak without a horrible pain going through my ears making it not so fun to talk.

I got my tonsils removed after being severely sick and painfully ill every 2 weeks, which was about 5 years ago and I have not gotten any infections that have brought me to that terrible of disease. I also never got sick very much after that, so I don't know where you got the easy infections from.

Nah I still have my tonsils.
It's just a warning by a doctor. I don't know how "easier" you'll get infected if you don't have your tonsils. I guess you're healthy that's why you don't get infected easily.

It's just that you lost one barrier.

Well I suppose that not everyone will react similarly to everything, but I never had an issue with being sick very much. I don't know, it's quite strange since I have a slow thyroid.
