Child has tongue and roof of mouth itching, had tonsillectomy. Normal?

My 7 year old daughter is 6 days post op from a tonsillectomy . She has gone from 69 pounds to 62 lbs. Today she is trying to eat milkshakes and is complaining of her tongue itching and the roof of her mouth itching. She has had tongue pain since the surgery (complains of it feeling sore and scratched up). Is this normal? What can I do to help her?

Your child seems to be doing well.There is no reason for concern.These are usual complains after an operation like tonsillectomy.Give her cold fluids and icecream. Give her regular antiseptic mouthwashes after food and before she goes to sleep.Keep her nostrils clean. Time will heal her very fast.She needs alot of tender love and care along with wishful assurance. Wishing her a speedy recovery,
