Tonsillectomy Treatment - Diagnosis and Procedure

Diagnostic tests required for tonsillectomy surgery in Visakhapatnam

If you have symptoms of tonsilitis, your doctor may perform the following diagnostic tests before finalizing your treatment plan.

  • Physical examination: Your throat doctor will perform a thorough physical examination before determining whether you have tonsillitis and what is the best course of treatment for you.

The physical examination includes checking the inside and outside of the throat for any abnormal swelling or rashes, palpating the neck to evaluate swelling in the neck lymph nodes, and assessing their breath sounds to check for pulmonary infection.

  • Throat swab: The ENT doctor will run a sterile swab through the back of your throat to get a testing sample which will be evaluated in a lab to determine whether the tonsillitis is caused due to a bacterial or viral infection.
  • Complete blood cell count (CBC): A CBC helps determine the nature of the pathogen causing the throat infection and its severity.

Pristyn Care provides a Book consultation with the best ENT specialists for the diagnosis and treatment of tonsillectomy in Visakhapatnam.

Treatment for tonsillitis

  • Medical management:
  • Surgical treatment: Surgery is the best treatment for recurring or chronic tonsillitis. Surgical intervention is considered necessary if you have experienced at least seven episodes of tonsillitis in the previous year. It is performed by completely removing both tonsils. It is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, however, in severe cases, you may be hospitalized for 1-2 days to ensure there are no postoperative complications.

Different surgical procedures for tonsillitis treatment in Visakhapatnam are:

  • Radiofrequency tonsillectomy

It is a laser procedure in which the tonsils are removed using a focused high energy radiofrequency beam. It is also known as radiofrequency tonsil ablation.

  • Harmonic scalpel tonsillectomy

A harmonic scalpel cuts the inflamed tonsils through vibration energy. It generates heat and friction, leading to protein denaturation and dissection of the tonsils.

  • Electrocautery or cauterization tonsillectomy

In this procedure, the surgeon uses a low energy electrocautery to remove the inflamed tonsils. It is one of the oldest or most conventional methods for tonsil removal.

  • Cold knife dissection tonsillectomy

A cold knife dissection is traditional open surgery for tonsil removal. The surgeon uses a ‘cold’ or sharp knife to cut the tonsils and their capsules from the surrounding tissues.

How long does it take to recover from a tonsillectomy?

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.
