^^^ lol.. my doctor said mine were the biggest he's seen too!! he said they were the size of golfballs too!!!
he said on a scale form 1 to 4, 4 being the biggest, mine were a PLUS 4!!!
i had the same problem about getting sick a lot for a longgg while.
i got mine taken out when i was 18. honestly, the first day coming out of surgery wasnt that bad. the aneastetics (sp?) were still in effect for the first day, i just felt really nauseous and weak all day. downside was that i kept puking up blood because of it.
but the most painful part was the few days to follow. i couldn't eat or drink it hurt so bad, even with liquid lortab (which burned to swallow)!!! I barely ate anything during recovery. the doctor told me i didnt have to eat if i didnt want to, but i had to keep hydrated. needless to say i lost a lot of weight at the time from not eating for 2 weeks. and even after the doctor told me it was okay to eat normal food again, i still couldnt. it wasnt painful to swallow anymore, but it was just very uncomfortable for a little while.
anyways, back to the point. IMO it was pretty painful, but was manageable if you take the pain meds a little before the recommended time (instead of every 4 hours, take it 30 mins before or so) to give it time to sink in. other than that, it wasnt excruciating unless i was trying to drink or talk any louder than a slight whisper for awhile..
ok, sorry for the long post!
