The Tonsillectomy Scar Appears To Be Dry And Still Painful?
I want to ask, 1 week after tonsillectomy I no longer eat soft foods such as porridge, I am forced to eat like a normal person, but after 5 months of surgery, I feel the connection is not yet dry even though I have finished all the medicine, just right I saw the tonsillectomy, I was horrified why? 🙁 This Overseas child wants to be afraid of paying control 🙁
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In the first 1 to 2 weeks after tonsillectomy (tonsillectomy), you are encouraged to consume foods that are soft, easy to digest, not too hot, not greasy, and also do not contain excessive fat. This suggestion is certainly not made without purpose. By adhering to this recommendation, coupled with adequate postoperative care, the healing process is expected to occur more quickly and optimally so that you can return to your normal activities without significant obstacles.
After months, if the tonsillectomy marks appear to be dry and still painful, you should be vigilant. It is feared that this condition occurs due to irritation or infection in your former surgery. Often, in addition to painful scars, irritation or infection in tonsillectomy will cause your throat to appear red, phlegm, or a variety of other complaints. We recommend that you consult directly with your doctor or ENT specialist doctor to be given the best solution according to the cause of your complaint. Frequently, mild conditions will improve quickly through the administration of several types of drugs.
In the meantime, we recommend that you first resolve your complaint with the following efforts:
Drink more (especially warm water or room temperature water)
Don't over-consume spicy, oily, crunchy foods, containing artificial sweeteners
Don't shout too much
Not taking drugs carelessly
Do not smoke
Many eat fruits that are rich in vitamin C, for example oranges, guavas, longan, and so on
Hope this helps ...
