    No only had tonsils out. And yes it does hurt like a .... Constant earache as well, which I've never ever had before so I didnt quite believe the things i read about having earache after, but its true, sadly.

    words fail me for how painful it is :<

    no doctor didnt say, but apparently it gets really painful (now) just before scabs fall off, and then its not painful, day 7-11 apparently. so my fnigers are crossed that scabs fall off tomoro.

    it wasnt co-codamol it was little 30mg codeine tablets and 500mg paracetemol tablets. i took 2 of each round the clock, literally.

    mate ive been taking pain killers round the clock for a week now. i no i shouldnt but all i can say is this - when you are in agony and you know that you have the power to stop that pain, what would you do.

    i was prescribed tramadol hydrochloride yesterday cos the pain worsened tenfold, so every four hours i am taking 100mg of that with 1000mg paracetemol.

    the tramadol made me feel wonderful lol - like i was put in a nice deep warm cosy hole but then made me feel quite sick later on at night. still worth it tho, lovely.

    I'd spend a lot of my time in agony without co-codamol, whether it's taken as two combined 30/500 tablets like I take or seperate tablets like they've given you. Tramadol has no pleasurable effects for me it just makes me feel like crap a few hours after I've taken it so I avoid it, pain its just that, pain and the co-codamol manages it.
