If you do the operation, will there be a risk of going back, and its abstinence? R n r nAnd after the operation the recovery will take a long time? Can you talk directly as usual? R n r nThank you ..
Good evening Atikah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The tonsils, also known as tonsils in medical terms, are structures found on the left and right in the mouth, and function as infection prevention agents, especially in children. As we age, a person's immune system gets stronger, and the role of these tonsils will be increasingly replaced. When they are completely replaced and not needed, these two glands will gradually shrink.
When these two tonsils are infected, either by bacteria or by viruses, these two glands will enlarge. And when the size is too large, causing symptoms in the form of snoring sleep, frequent waking during sleep, frequent choking and the like, then the treatment is by means of surgery. The image below shows the degree of enlargement of the tonsils, and usually surgery is needed in the 3rd and 4th conditions.
This is important because as you can see, the tonsil sizes in the 3rd and 4th pictures have started blocking most of the oral cavity. Then regarding your next question, once the tonsils are removed, since these are not structures that can grow back like hair or hair, there will be no recurrence or the tonsils coming back. Each person will only do one tonsil removal in a lifetime.
Then for abstinence, after you have had surgery, the abstinence can be in the form of prohibiting talking too much, eating foods that are too hot and sharp edged or requiring a lot of chewing, but this is relative and only for a while. After you recover, there is absolutely no taboo. The recovery depends on each person, usually not more than a week. So, hopefully it answers your question.
