About Tonsillectomy

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is Tonsillectomy?
Tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the tonsils. It is often performed along with adenoidectomy, which is a surgical procedure to remove the adenoid glands. Tonsillectomy helps in removing recurrent throat infections. It lessens severe throat infections for a minimum of two years.

How is Tonsillectomy performed?

  • A small tool is inserted into the mouth to keep it open.
  • The tongue is depressed to view the throat.
  • The tonsils are then removed with a surgical instrument.
  • The cuts do not require stitches.

How to prepare for Tonsillectomy?
  • Any bleeding disorder should be controlled before the surgery.
  • If the patient has acute tonsillitis, it should be treated before tonsillectomy. Tonsillectomy may be postponed for three to four weeks in case of treatment.
  • The patient will go though a complete physical examination.
  • The patient will need to do some blood tests.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient is taking, including herbs and vitamins.
  • The patient will be asked to take certain medication about 10 days before surgery.
  • If the patient needs to take medication, it can be taken with a small amount of water

Days admitted : Tonsillectomy is usually done as an outpatient procedure. On rare occasions children may be kept overnight in the hospital for observation.

Anesthesia : General Anesthesia.
Sometimes adults may be given local anesthesia.

Recovery : - The patient is taken to the recovery room and kept there until the effects of anesthesia wears off.
- The patient’s vital signs are monitored.
- The patient is made to lie down on the side to avoid any chance of aspiration of blood into the lungs.
- A complete recovery will take approximately one to two weeks.
- The patient will be affected with a sore throat for several days.
- White scab will form in the throat for five to 10 days after the surgery.

Risks : - Bleeding
- Infection
- Injury to the uvula
- Nasal sounding voice
- Risks of anesthesia such as adverse reaction to medication and breathing difficulty

After care : - The patient should stay away from sick people to avoid chances of infection.
- Antibiotics and pain medication should be taken to relieve sore throat.
- The patient should take liquid food or food that is soft for 24 hours after the surgery.
- The patient should avoid strenuous physical activities for about 10 days.
- The doctor should be informed if the patient has bleeding, earache or fever for more than three days.
