Ugh...I had my tonsils out when i was 16. It was awful. It is hard to swallow even your own spit. Make sure he/she has some good painkillers, and expect about 2 weeks worth of hard recovery. The older you are with a tonsillectomy, the harder it is on you. Anything that is going to make them swallow will be painful. Anything that will make you salivate will be painful. Sucking on ice was about all I could do. Popsicles were to surgery and ice cream was to thick to swallow. Warm broth may help. Just be patient, and give painkillers.
