    Soup, soup and more soup. You can just grab it when you're hungry, it's warm and soothing and fills you up, and takes very little swallowing.

    If you want something sweet, make a SW blancmange, very quick and easy. 1 large tub vlf fromage frais and a sugar free jelly.

    Hope you feel better soon. Tonsilitis is horrible

    sounds awful, bless you! Well I remember having ice cream for tonisillitus as a kid and obviously that's out of the question so how about freezing a muller light for a couple of hours?? (I've got a vanilla and choc one in the freezer for later). Hope you feel better soon. Jay x

    Or mugshots.

    ALSO for some pain relief - get some soluble aspirins, put 3 in a glass of water and wait for them to dissolve. Gargle 3 times with it then add some sugar free squash to the rest and drink it

    Won't your Dr refer you to have yor tonsils out? Mine were awful, about 5 times a year, and I finally had them taken out last January. It was the best thing I ever did!

    nope !! i wish apparently in my primary care trust they wont take em out unless you have it 4 times in 3 month i did get it 3 times one year but it's classed as a seriuos surgery so they dont like to do it, poor me has to grin and bear it , it has gor better over the last few years though i get it less and not as severe, everyone at work says they look appalling but i just dont feel ill bit tired and thats it.

    The tonsils perform an important job so the problem with them has to really justify them being removed.

    I haven't had it for years and years... I've still got my tonsils so I run for the hills whenever anyone I know has it, or even suspects they might! Hope you're feeling better soon!
