Tonsils in medical language is also called tonsillitis, which is inflammation of the tonsils due to bacterial infection. The most common symptoms include strep throat which causes pain when swallowing, fever, uncomfortable sensation in the mouth, hoarseness, headache, decreased appetite, etc. Inflammation of the tonsils can occur in both tonsils and one of the tonsils. Infected tonsils will swell and swell accompanied by redness, and white patches on the surface of the affected area.
Mild tonsillitis generally does not require medical treatment. As for drugs such as pain relievers and antibiotics needed for handling the disease. In cases of recurrent tonsillitis, or a tendency to recur frequently (chronic) or do not respond to treatment, surgery can be performed.
Apart from infection, tonsils can also enlarge without being affected by infection. Someone who snores frequently during sleep, as well as overweight / obese people tend to have enlarged tonsils. Although it does not cause symptoms, but the condition will cause adverse effects.
Regarding your question, please note that inflammation still occurs as a postoperative healing process. Pain sensations are also felt. Ice cream helps reduce the level of inflammation and reduce pain caused postoperatively. Soft-textured ice cream helps the mouth and throat feel comfortable and helps improve postoperative appetite. Therefore, the advice given by the doctor who treats your sibling is quite good. White ice cream in question might be vanilla ice cream, which is ice cream with a soft taste and texture and not too sharp related to taste and texture. Consuming ice cream after tonsillectomy is not mandatory. However, consuming soft ice cream is expected to help make the throat feel comfortable and reduce postoperative pain and inflammation.
In addition, do enough rest, consume soft food and multiply the consumption of water. Take medications prescribed by your doctor and do post-operative control according to the schedule. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
