How Big Is The Tonsil To Be Operated On?
Night. I had a checkup 4 months ago and the results were that my tonsils were T2 sized. Do I need tonsillectomy?
Hello, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Tonsillitis or tonsillitis can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection, with symptoms such as sore throat, hoarseness, fever, bad breath, cough, and headache. Treatment of tonsillitis depends on the type of cause and its severity. If it is suspected to be caused by a virus, usually the doctor will leave the care independently at home, and the symptoms will improve themselves on days 7 to 10. If it is suspected due to a bacterial infection, usually the doctor will give antibiotics to be taken for 10 days. However, if by self-care and the use of antibiotics, tonsillitis does not heal, it can be considered to do surgical removal of tonsils.
The indications for tonsillectomy are:
Chronic tonsillitis (symptoms continue for more than 2 weeks)
Antibiotics and drainage are not effective in treating tonsillitis due to bacterial infections
Cause febrile seizures
Tonsils enlargement starts from the smallest and largest, consisting of T1, T2, T3, and T4. The size of your T2 tonsils is classified as not too large. In addition, the size of tonsils can not be the sole reason for surgical removal of tonsils, but must also be accompanied by symptoms as above.
I suggest that you seek treatment directly to the ENT specialist doctor, so that a thorough examination can be carried out, such as question and answer, throat examination, and supporting examinations if necessary such as throat swabs and blood tests, so that treatment can be given in accordance with your diagnosis and degree of illness. .
As for the things you can do right now are:
Get enough rest.
Consuming enough water
Consuming tea or warm water mixed with honey when it feels painful
Avoiding exposure to cigarette smoke.
Relieves fever and pain that appear with paracetamol at the dosage indicated on the drug packaging
Thus the information I can give, hopefully can be useful.
