In brief: About 10 days

Takes about 10 days until most people start feeling human again following a tonsillectomy.
That includes talking.

In brief: Right away

Tonsil surgery usually doesn't affect your voice.
Often it will hurt to speak because the throat muscles are irritated and inflammed following tonsil surgery. As that heals, there is less discomfort making speaking less painful.
