Can I Move After Tonsillectomy?
morning, I Anaamandel I relapsed again on Tuesday, at first I thought there was something in my throat that was disturbing, very painful to the ears, I also had thought that my tonsils had thrush. But after 4 days did not disappear too, finally I decided to see a doctor. The tonsil doctor said I had T4 and had to have an operation. What I want to ask, can I get back to normal as usual after surgery? Because taking time off for a week – 2 weeks for the recovery period is difficult where I study. Thank you doctor before.
Tonsils are a normal tissue found in the inside of the oral cavity. Tonsils have several functions such as helping with resistance to respiratory infections. The tonsils can become enlarged, for example when you are frequently exposed to respiratory tract infections, or inflammation of your throat.
Swollen tonsils can cause symptoms such as easy exposure to respiratory tract infections, feels lumps in the throat, bad breath smells. From your situation, if your tonsils have enlarged to T4, then your tonsils have covered the entire back of your mouth. Tonsils that have enlarged to T4 usually require tonsillectomy.
After performing tonsillectomy, it takes a minimum of 7 days for the postoperative condition to recover. So it is recommended that you rest 7 days in advance.
After 10 days after tonsillectomy, it can still feel pain in the throat, and may still experience bleeding from the former operation. But this can be minimized by taking drugs given by doctors, and also avoiding the consumption of spicy foods, hot foods, and hard foods.
