Got the tonsils done at 20, not too bad... the worst was the feeling the liquid vicodin gave me. I finally got well enough to pound advil and I felt a lot better like that. Vicodin makes me feel like shit, see if you can get some anti nausea stuff too if need be.
Vicodin or percocet both do it. Good luck!
I feel like I used to get sick a fair bit, the ear nose throat dr said my tonsils were some of the worst he'd seen and he couldn't even get all the bad tissue out. I've felt loads better ever since.
Just stocked up on all manner of ice cream & goodies.
