The Power of Percocet


“Percocet can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions.
Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert.”

For the past week or so I’ve been taking the powerfully wonderful painkiller of Percocet thanks to my tonsillectomy. While Percocet definitely helped with my pain, it also seems to have made me exceptionally emotional—irrational even. Things that were kind of happy were beyond joyful; things that were slightly sad were tear-jerkingly devastating. Really what I’m trying to say is I am SO grateful to be done with Percocet! Oh…and surgery! Finally my mind is back!

Now for my own personal review of a tonsillectomy:
For all of you who still need your tonsils removed: it is absolutely the most painful thing you’ll ever go through! Ten times worse than getting impacted wisdom teeth out! Worse than childbirth even (not that I’ve had a baby or anything)! Read no further!

For all of you who have already had your tonsils out and shared with me that getting your tonsils out was “the most painful thing you’ll ever go through,” “ten times worse than getting impacted wisdom teeth out,” and even “worse than child birth”: I honestly and truly thank you. After being frightened with such terrifying exaggerations I found myself relieved with the experience. To be honest, I found that getting my tonsils out was no worse than a bad case of Strep—which isn’t pleasant, but isn’t the end of the world either. So again I thank you for your exaggerations.

Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I am quite grateful to be done!
