About Tonsillectomy

What is Tonsillectomy?

Tonsillectomy is the surgery to remove tonsils and is only prescribed if tonsillitis results in difficult-to-manage complications like swallowing difficulty, breathing difficulty, or obstructive sleep apnea. Tonsils are two masses of tissues, also known as lymph nodes, 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.

Treatment

Procedure

The diagnosis of tonsillitis is based on a physical examination of the throat through an endoscopy test. The ENT doctor may take a throat culture and send it to the laboratory to identify the cause of the infection. 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.

Is bad breath normal after advanced tonsils treatment?

It is quite normal for a patient to have bad breath for about 1-2 weeks after treatment. They may have scabs form at the sites where the adenoids and tonsils were removed. A patient also may complain of ear pain; however, this is coming from the throat and is normal.
