Hello Mindy! I just had my Adenoids and Tonsills out as well as a deviated septum correction and a turbinoid reduction. I'm on day 6 of recovery. How long did it take you to know for sure you were cured! I haven't had the scab smell set in yet. I am rinsing and washing 4 times a day to keep my scabs "clean". and thin. How long did your scabs last? I have a gross taste in my mouth but I'm sure it's the open sores in my throat and sinuses. I really hope this works for me.
