Patient :Hi! I had my tonsils, adenoids and uvula removed Wednesday morning. The pain is getting worse. I am on the top pain meds, but nothing seems to be touching it. It's worse every morning I wake up. It burns and is hard to swallow. My ears and tongue are even sore. I sip water throughout the whole day. As soon as I try to sleep for over an hour i wake up in throbbing pain. Is this normal?
