Today, after having my tonsils removed, I coughed so hard in my sleep that I woke up spitting blood. Turned out I'd ripped my throat. They had to put me to sleep and cauterize the damaged area. Now I'm in even worse pain than before. FML

A few years back, I had my tonsils out. My throat started bleeding unexpectedly at 11pm and it was actually pooling in my mouth. I had to sit upright all night, swallowing my own blood (if I spat it out it kind of rushed out and I couldn't breathe) until 8 in the morning when the surgeon could fix it up.
It is really scary and really horrible , I feel OP's pain!


Sounds very unpleasant. I have respect for people like you and OP for pushing through such painful and terrifying experiences. Personally the worst injury I've ever received is a broken pinkie toe, so I wouldn't be able to relate to you or OP. But I'm glad you lived through it with no permanent harm and I hope you don't experience anything like it again :)
