Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tonsillectomy (surgical removal of tonsils) is usually done as part of the management of tonsillitis (tonsillitis). This action can be done as a therapeutic option if tonsillitis no longer responds well to conservative therapy, if significant tonsillary enlargement is found, if tonsillitis becomes the focus of infection that spreads to other tissues, if tonsillitis often recurs and gets worse, or also, if tonsillitis arrives causes sleep disorders and also breathing problems.
After tonsillectomy, you need to take some time to rest while undergoing treatment as the doctor advised. In addition, for healing to run more optimally, you need to also balance the treatment of doctors with good dietary settings, such as:
Eat soft foods first, such as porridge broth, juice, smoothies
Don't eat oily, spicy, coconut milk, berampas, excessive flavoring
Avoid consuming foods that are too hot
Expand eat fruits that are rich in vitamin C
The above suggestions should be done for at least the first 1-4 weeks after the operation. However, in some cases, for example if there are obstacles to healing, this action can also be done longer.
There is no specific ban on consuming rice in people who have just had a tonsillectomy for 1 week. However, it would be better if you consume soft rice and added soup to make it easier to swallow.
That's all our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with your doctor or ENT specialist who treated you before.
I hope this helps.
