About Tonsillectomy

Tonsillectomy is the surgery to remove infected tonsils. Tonsillitis can result in difficult-to-manage complications such as swallowing difficulty, breathing difficulty, or obstructive sleep apnea.

Tonsils are two masses of lymph tissues located at the back of your throat. They act as filters, preventing germs from entering your airways. However, they sometimes themselves become infected. The viruses and bacteria that attack them cause swelling and inflammation resulting in tonsillitis.

Tonsillectomy Treatment - Diagnosis and Procedure

Diagnosis

An expert ENT doctor can diagnose tonsillitis on the basis of a physical examination of the throat through an endoscopy test. The ENT specialist might also take a throat culture and send it to a lab in order to identify the cause of the infection.

Surgery

Treatment is not necessary in the case of mild or acute tonsillitis, especially when it is due to cold. Simple home remedies will work. However, if the condition is severe, tonsillectomy is prescribed. It is a surgical procedure for treating chronic tonsillitis where the surgeon removes the tonsils from the upper throat.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is bad breath normal after advanced tonsils treatment?

It is quite normal for a patient to have a bad breath for about 1-2 weeks after treatment. They may have scabs form at the sites where the adenoids and tonsils were removed.

How painful is recovery after advanced tonsil treatment?

The treatment fully heals the condition and reflects the improvement in breathing within a couple of days. The recovery is quick as the modern procedures involve minimal cuts and wounds which heal faster.

Can tonsils grow back?

After surgery, it’s possible for tonsils to grow back but only if the tissue that is left behind after the procedure regenerates. In normal conditions, tonsils may regrow partially, but probably not completely.

How can I make my tonsillectomy heal faster?

The best way to ensure the best results are:

  • Get plenty of rest, especially in the first couple of days after surgery
  • Sip water or eat ice pops to stay hydrated without hurting your throat
  • Warm, clear broth and applesauce are ideal food choices during early recovery
  • The patient can add ice cream, pudding, oatmeal, and other soft foods to their diet after a couple of days.

What dietary habits should the patient follow after tonsillectomy?

After you’ve had a tonsillectomy, it is very important to take care of your nutrition and diet to make sure that your recovery is not impeded. Food habits you should adopt during the recovery period after tonsillectomy are:

  • Most patients experience an upset stomach and nausea for a couple of days after the surgery due to the anesthesia. During this period, it is best to go slow with foods and liquids. In fact, you can even avoid solid foods entirely on the day of the surgery.
  • Make sure to consume at least 2 to 3 ounces of water each hour to prevent dehydration. You can also consume other liquids such as apple juice, grape juices, electrolyte drinks, flat sodas, ice pops, and broth.
  • Once you can handle clear liquids and are sure you don’t have any lingering nausea, you can start drinking dairy products like milk, smoothies, ice cream, shakes, and malts.
  • Your throat may feel irritated for a week so opt for easy-to-swallow dost foods such as daliya, creamy cereals, soup, paneer, pureed fruits, yogurt, and mashed potatoes during this period.
  • You should also avoid crunchy, spicy, and fatty foods during this period. Once your throat feels normal, you can resume your regular diet.

Which foods should be avoided after tonsillectomy surgery?

During your recovery period, it is important to focus on the proper diet as certain foods may improve recovery while others may impede it. Some foods you should avoid during your recovery period are:

  • Avoid all red foods such as jell-O, cherry ice pops, tomato-based products, and red drinks for at least a week after the surgery. These foods make it harder to discern if there is any bleeding or infection from the incisions.
  • Avoid crispy and crunchy foods as the jagged ends of these foods can scratch and irritate the surgical site. It is best to avoid chips, crackers, and other fried items for at least a month.
  • Avoid hot meals for a few days. Instead, take room temperature meals to avoid irritating the surgical area.
