My tonsillectomy 7 was days ago & my mouth has been super dry. I️’ve been drinking a lot but not much helps. So what can I do?

In brief: Medication?

Are you on pain or antibiotic medicines? Or anything else that you weren't on before? Sometimes medications can be the cause of dry mouth.
For now, keep drinking, and consider using sugar-free lozenges (such as Vitamin C drops) or gum to help.
