I got my tonsils out 12 days ago and the procedure made me very phleghmy, so I've been trying to bring all that up using the back of my tongue. Anyway I was trying to do this tonight but nothing would come up but i felt like I had a wad of phlegm in my throat, then I realized it was probably my uvula cause nothing was coming up. I looked in my throat and saw that it was curled up and sticking to my throat, which is very uncomfortable.. I can breathe ok it's just annoying and I'm afraid to sleep. is this normal after a tonsillectomy. It's not teal swollen or large just being a pain.
