The summer of surgeries is upon us.  Surgery one is done and the second of three is Monday.  This handsome husband of mine has had his nasal bones removed and his sinuses opened and is now going in for a tonsillectomy at the age of 36!

Yes, you read that right, 36 years old and he is finally getting his tonsils out.  It all started at the beginning of the school year when our oldest came home from school sick and after a trip to the doctor we were told he had strep.  A couple days later the husband also had strep and that scenario happened over and over and over again for my husband.  The doctors have basically had the husband on an antibiotic and steroid since September and finally his primary care handed over his case to the ENT.  They determined that the strep is basically stuck in his sinuses and tonsils and that is where the summer of surgeries began.

Now at 36, a tonsillectomy is a bit different to recover from and the comments we get from providers and friends are not too comforting.  So I decided to put together a little tonsillectomy survival kit to help the hubby get through what is lining up to be a pretty rough recovery.

The number one thing we have been told is to stay hydrated by any means necessary, because adults tend to over medicate and under hydrate which makes recovery very difficult.  If you are going to put a kit together here are a few things to include:

  1. Soup: liquid foods are great and anything that they do not need to chew and is easy to swallow. (lawdy the amount of people commenting on the tomato soup…apologies, it was what I had in the house at the time…for the photo and what my husband could hold down ENT approved, obviously follow your doctor’s orders). 
  2. Tea and a mug: To help with hydration having tea can be a great addition to a water filled day.  
  3. Yogurt and Applesauce: Great foods to help nourish the body
  4. Popsicles: Cold on the throat to help soothe
  5. Get Well Card: A lovely note to help the patient know that you love and care for them
  6. Gift Cards: This could be for the person going through the surgery or for the family caring for them.  
  7. Water or a water bottle: HYDRATE!
  8. Kleenex Go-Anywhere: When you are recovering, tissue is great to have on hand.  With tonsillectomies, it is often difficult to swallow, which does not stop saliva from building up. Combat that with Kleenex!

Kleenex Go-Anywhere packs are my favorite travel tissue packs.  They have a strap with a snap to help secure the tissue to whatever you desire.  I bought a couple of these packs and have them placed in our vehicles and around the house as well as my purse and our swim bag.  You can never have enough tissue and with the husband still recovering from the nasal cavity surgery and now having the tonsil surgery we will be going through a lot of these.

You know I am always on the hunt for a good deal and I never buy anything without a coupon.  My kids know that if it is not on sale or I do not have a coupon, we do not purchase it.  I found Kleenex Go-Anywhere packs at my local Walmart in the tissue section and I had a $0.50 off coupon that I used to save even more!  You can get your coupon here!

So if you are prepping for a surgery like us, or just want to save some cash on a great item, grab the ibotta coupon, head to Walmart and get yourself some Kleenex Go-Anywhere Packs!

As an ENT I can say you definitely need to rethink this misinformation and it seems that you have no idea what you’re talking about because you are supposed to stay away from acidic anything including tomato soup and it’s not your experience, it’s your partners, yes the experience is different for everyone but hopefully they didn’t cause to much scarring from improper aftercare. Take this down please and you aren’t supposed to blow your nose because it can cause bleeding and damage from the pressure you’re placing on the freshly raw/empty cavities that we cauterize to stop the bleeding.

I am leaving the post up because it is my space, I pay for online and my husband helped put this together based on his personal experience. You are an ENT, so someone can read your comment and take that advice. I said soup in general, tomato was what my husband had because it ended up being the ONLY thing he could hold down and our ENT was fine with it. In addition, the Kleenex was not initially purchased to blow a nose, he was a drooling mess, it was for drool...but he for sure blew his nose due to his prior sinus surgery 3 weeks earlier, notice I did not write blow your nose for a tonsillectomy. Chill...you aren't our doctor and I promise you the 3 people that read this post a year, read the comments and will consult their doctors. My husband is JUST fine with zero scaring and we followed his ENT's orders.

It’s very clear you are an employee of Kleenex. I am 38 and had my tonsils out a week ago and there is nothing on that list I would want anywhere near me after surgery. Tomato soup? Have you lost your mind? Kleenex? You can’t blow your nose so I’m assuming that’s for all the extra saliva?? Get a trash can lady! You need to remove this silliness before someone actually thinks you can eat tomato soup after a tonsillectomy.

I was paid by Kleenex to write a post, but my husband definitely ate tomato soup and lots of it after surgery and blew his nose a ton because 3 weeks earlier he had sinus cavity surgery and had a lot of fluid moving. Sorry your recovery hasn’t been as easy to eat, but I write from experience and not because I was paid. Move on.
