Me: From the other ENT's I've talked to, I know they're excruciatingly painful for adults.
Dr: That's right. There aren't enough bad adjectives to describe how horrible they are. They're just really really really gruesome for adults. Ever had a canker sore? It's like having two canker sores THIS BIG in the back of your throat. You'll be down for a good two weeks.
Me: What do you mean by "down"? How down? When can I take care of my kids?
Dr: I'd give yourself 5-7 days. But it'll be another week after that until you feel better.
How do you handle pain...?
Doug: NOT WELL!
(such a reassuring visit...)
