What do I do about my tonsillectomy scars?

I’m 17 and recently got my tonsils removed. I’m on day 13 and I’ve still got my scars, this might a bit TMI but I’ve got one full scar still on one side and one scar that almost gone. I can barely talk honestly sound a bit like a deaf person and I’m supposed to work In 4 days and idk why my scars haven’t gone yet. Can someone tell me what to do please!?

    Two weeks is nothing. You just have to wait for the surgical sites to heal. Right now they’re swollen because they’re still in the process of healing.

    Just follow the aftercare guidance you were given by your surgical team.

    If you still have concerns and are unhappy with my advice based upon personal experience then contact your surgical aftercare team.
