What is Tonsillitis Surgery?

The tonsils are two oval-shaped pads of tissue at the back of the throat, one on each side. Tonsillectomy is the surgical removal of the tonsils.

Tonsillectomy was previously a standard treatment for treating tonsil infection and irritation (tonsillitis). Nowadays, tonsillectomy is commonly used to treat sleep apnea. However, if tonsillitis recurs frequently and the patient is not responding to medications and other treatments, doctors prescribe tonsillectomy.

    What is Tonsillectomy?

    Tonsillectomy is the surgical removal of the tonsils, the two tiny glands at the back of the throat. These contain white blood cells and act like guards against any infection that enters through the mouth.

    Tonsillitis is the infection of tonsils. It leads to swelling of the glands and causes sore throat. You could need a tonsillectomy if the infection occurs frequently. The infection can lead to fever, cause difficulty in swallowing, and swollen glands in your neck. Swelling can subside on its own or sometimes doctors prescribe antibiotics.

    Tonsillectomy may also be required to treat breathing and other issues caused by big tonsils, as well as to treat unusual tonsil disorders. A tonsillectomy normally takes at least 10 to two weeks to recover from.

      What are the Symptoms of Tonsillitis?

      Children are more likely than adults to develop tonsillitis and require tonsillectomies. People of any age, however, can have problems with their tonsils and require surgery.

      Typically, the surgery is used to treat those who have tonsillitis or strep throat on a regular basis. Ask your doctor if a tonsillectomy is an option for you if you’ve had at least seven instances of tonsillitis or strep in one year.

      Other medical conditions that can be treated with a tonsillectomy include:

      • Swollen tonsils might cause respiratory issues.
      • Sleep apnea is characterized by frequent and loud snoring spells during which you cease breathing while sleeping.
      • Tonsillar hemorrhage
      • Tonsil carcinoma is a malignancy of the tonsils.

      Precautions before Tonsillectomy

      Two weeks before your surgery, you must stop taking anti-inflammatory medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, etc as these medicines may lead to bleeding during and after surgery. Tell your doctor about all sort of medicines, herbs, concoctions you are taking. Before your tonsillectomy, you’ll need to fast after midnight—you should not drink or eat anything. 

      It is a day care procedure. It is good to have somebody with you to drive you back home. 


      Tonsillectomy - Surgical Procedures

      Tonsils can be removed in a variety of methods. “Cold knife dissection” is a popular technique. Your surgeon will use a scalpel to remove your tonsils in this scenario.

      Another frequent approach for tonsillectomy is cauterization, which involves burning away the tissues. In some tonsillectomy techniques, ultrasonic vibration is also used. Tonsillectomies take roughly a half-hour to complete.

      With general anesthesia, you’ll be sleeping no matter which surgical approach your doctor chooses. You will not be aware of the surgery or experience any discomfort. You’ll be in a recovery room when you wake up following the tonsillectomy. As you wake up, medical personnel will check your blood pressure and heart rate. After a successful tonsillectomy, most people are able to return home the same day.

      Recovery & Post Operation Care

      The following are some suggestions for managing pain and promoting a speedy recovery:

      Medications – Follow your surgeon’s or hospital’s instructions for pain medication.

      Fluids – To avoid dehydration, it’s critical to drink plenty of fluids following surgery. Water and ice pops are both excellent options.

      Food – The ideal foods to eat just after surgery are bland, easy-to-swallow foods. If tolerated, foods like ice cream and pudding might be included in the diet. Easy-to-chew and swallow foods should be included in the diet as soon as possible. Foods that are acidic, spicy, hard, or crunchy might induce pain or bleeding.

      Rest – It is a day care procedure. One can resume normal light activities in a day or two but  vigorous activities like running and biking should be avoided for two weeks. After you resume normal diet and do not require pain medication, you should be able to return to work or school. Discuss any activities that should be avoided with your doctor.
