Hello Raka V. Arsandyan, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The tonsils or tonsils are lymph nodes located on either side of the larynx. The function of these glands is to help the body deal with infections. In certain conditions, for example, if there is recurrent inflammation of the tonsils, or if the tonsils swell so large that they cause swallowing problems, breathing problems, and sleep disturbances, surgical removal of the tonsils or tonsillectomy may be performed.
Here are some things you need to pay attention to after tonsillectomy:
Take your medicines regularly according to your doctor's advice. The drugs given usually consist of painkillers and antibiotics. You must take your antibiotics until they run out. Bleeding after tonsillectomy is normal. Slight bleeding is normal and nothing to worry about. Bleeding can last up to 4-8 days after surgery, in some people it can last up to 3 weeks. If there is a little bleeding, you can drink ice water to stop the bleeding and sit in an upright position. If the bleeding is profuse, go to the hospital immediately. To prevent bleeding, pay attention to the following: do not smoke or inhale secondhand smoke (passive smoking) avoid bathing in hot water avoid eating or drinking that is too hot, too spicy, or sharp (such as fried foods or chips) avoid gargling too roughly try avoid coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose as much as possible. Drink plenty of fluids, especially cold ones. Eat softer foods, avoid hot, spicy, or acidic foods. Do not eat sharp foods Use a humidifier in your home to prevent dryness of the throat You can talk normally, but avoid screaming until you are fully recovered Check according to the doctor's schedule
Complete recovery after tonsillectomy will usually occur in 2-3 weeks.
That's all the information from me, I hope it's enough to answer
