It is very difficult for children to eat after a tonsillectomy. This is really jelly and ice cream time! I cannot imagine how sore and uncomfortable it must be to try to swallow corn flakes an cookies and even coke which is so acid.
After a few days the operation area heals and he should be beack to eating normally if not even better than before.
