Tonsillitis :( help!

Postby Jolean » Sun May 10, 2009 1:47 am

Hey guys.
I was wondering if you had any suggestions for me. I have really bad tonsillitis, so bad I was in yesterday hospital getting fed through a drip because i couldnt swallow the tablets..penicillin, painkillers and whatever the heck it is they put in a normal drip to keep you hydrated...
they let me out as i can swallow them now (painfully but I can) and can sip water.
but as for food I am finding the only thing i can eat is icecream. its nice and cold and soothing and i dont have to chew (I cant still chew yet due to the swelling)
So i was wondering if you guys had any Ideas on what I can have other than this really nice icecream thats gunna kill my hard work
Any suggestions???

Jelly - (diet)
Icy-poles (like zooper doopers.. they have only 40 or so calories each)
Fruit smoothies
Ice water
Puree pumpkin
Mashed potato

Few things from the top of my head! Hope you get better soon..

Try gargling some salt water, it helps your recovery :)

You poor thing :( I had my tonsils out about a year ago because of recurrent tonsilitis.
Dr Mandie has pretty much said all my suggestions, but I drank alot of juice too. Lots of nutrients to get the healing happening but make sure you go for 100% stuff and check the calories on the bottle some are very high cal :)
Yogo :P so bad but so good for tonsilitis!

The juice is a good suggestion, I was thinking if it isn't too painful too get the one with some pulp... this way your keeping your fibre intake up a little... hope you get better soon.

You can make a low-fat equivalent to icecream by pureeing frozen banana slices in a food processor. We did this the other week and it tasted wonderful. We added frozen berries and almonds too and that was nice, though the nuts added fat.

I remember my nan used to have this barrel thing with a handle you had to crank for ages to make icecream. I hope you dont mean that... hehehehe.. I would be all better by the time i finished it.. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Are there any frozen yoghurts that are low in calories? I know many of them are low fat, but I don't know if they add buckets of sugar like many other low-fat foods do.
