Tonsillectomy - When Is It Required?

Tonsillectomy - When Is It Required?

The tonsils are soft tissue masses which are located at the back of your throat, usually at the pharynx. The tonsils are masses which are part of the lymphatic system that helps fight infections. However, tonsils can themselves become inflamed and cause a lot of painTonsillectomy is a procedure to remove the tonsils and relieve pain.

Why is tonsillectomy performed?
A few decades back, tonsillectomy was a routine surgery performed to relieve any pain within the tonsils. This method of treatment, however, has changed over the past few decades as pain medications for inflammation have improved vastly. However, tonsillitis is still performed in many cases wherein it tends to cause acute problems. Some of the cases it is applicable in are:

  1. Chronic bad breath problems caused by recurrent inflammation of the tonsils
  2. Recurrent sore throats caused by tonsillitis
  3. It is also done along with dental surgery for correcting teeth with imperfect positioning
  4. Abscess formation in the mouth
  5. Upper airway being obstructed due to inflammation, thus causing difficulty with sleeping, snoring, or causing sleep apnea (irregular breathing during sleep)
  6. Ear infections being regularly caused by inflammation of the tonsils

Other reasons why it may be recommended
Tonsillectomy may be also be recommended when there are no indications of problems but tonsillitis and other infections keep cropping up too regularly. This affects children and can make them sick or keep them in pain regularly. Some of these other indications are mentioned below:

  1. Tonsil infections and inflammations happening too frequently within a year
  2. Tonsillitis is caused by bacterial infection wherein the antibiotics aren’t effective
  3. Formation of pus in the form of an abscess within or around the tonsils which keep forming even after repeated drainage or administering antibiotics

Possible complications and risks
Like any other form of surgery, tonsillectomy has certain risks associated with it as well. However, these are very rare. Some of these risks and complications are mentioned as follows –

  1. Swelling of the mouth: The tongue and the soft palate or the roof of the mouth may swell, resulting in breathing difficulties an few hours after the surgery.
  2. Infection: As is the case with any surgery, infections may occur in rare cases, which may require further treatment.
  3. Adverse reactions to anesthetics: Many patients exhibit an adverse reaction to anesthetics and may develop symptoms such as a headache, nausea, muscle soreness and frequent vomiting.
  4. Bleeding during surgery or healing: Although it is rare, bleeding during and after surgery has been reported after all sorts of procedures and it may occur with tonsillectomy as well.

Dear lybrateuser, - Difficulty in breathing can lead to less oxygenation of tissues which may lead to excessive sweating - get the DNS corrected so that you are able to breathe properly & also get a sound sleep.

Middle Ear Infections - Everything You Should Know!

Middle Ear Infections - Everything You Should Know!

The human ear is divided into three parts, namely the outer, middle and inner ear. All these parts function in coherence with each other and help us in converting vibrations into sound and information. The middle ear consists of the air space between the inner ear and the outer ear and contains the bones that transmit the vibrations of the outer ear and translate them into information. This area is prone to infections, especially among children and thus may cause discomfort or pain

Symptoms of middle ear infections: Middle ear infections primarily tend to manifest themselves as inflammation of the tissues and buildup of fluids. Some of the symptoms are mentioned below.

Infections in children: Middle ear infections primarily occur in children although it can occur in adults as well. Some of the common symptoms could be:

  • Ear pain either sitting or standing up and especially while lying down
  • Irritability and crying, which in infants could translate to more than usual crying 
  • Problems with sound and difficulties in hearing
  • Fluid buildup causing balance related problems
  • Discharge of fluid in certain cases
  • Unable to sleep and also loss of appetite
  • In some cases children may have high fever

Causes of middle ear infections: The primary cause of middle ear infection is due to the presence of bacteria or virus in the area. The Eustachian tube, which runs from the middle ear to the back of the throat, is connected to nasal passages as well. Any infection that affects the throat or the nose may also affect the middle ear through this tube. Primary causes for the infections could be

  • Cold or flu like symptoms, which then infect the middle ear as well
  • Otitis media, which is the buildup of fluid and inflammation either due to the presence of bacteria and viruses or even without it
  • Seasonal infections, which are common during late autumn or winters
  • Air pollution is also known to be a factor
  • Infection from others, especially in the case of children when they are part of a group care
  • Children from 6 months to 2 years are also susceptible to middle ear infections as their immune systems are much less developed.

Treatment of middle ear infections: Usually, middle ear infections resolve on their own within a day or so. You can try warm compress with a soft piece of cloth to ease the pain. However, if pain persists for too long then antibiotic medications may be required to fight the infection with pain relief medications to lessen the pain and discomfort.

Hi. Whatever I eat its not getting digest and sometimes it's coming out f my throat and the taste like full citric salty. Something is rolling continuously from throat to stomach. Finally I used to vomit. While vomiting 1st complete oil used to come out water the oil added in my food and next the vomit is like citric taste. Like so much salty taste. And if I contioulsy vomit with little strain mean some bloody colour I used to vomit. It's not complete blood. It's like brown colour salty taste. For this I always used to have soda. If I drink soda mean completely I digest wth heavy sound and I feel relax. This I suffered from past four days and still. Frqntly I suffer from this from my college days 2011.in my hostel used to give old food. Idly dosa. After eat dat I feel like indigestion. Usually this digestive problem occurs for three reasons I found from my side. One is eating yesterdays food curry and second is eating oily snacks and third is half boiled rice.

You are suffering from acidity/gas. Do this 1. Don't overeat 2. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style. This is most important n non negotiable part 7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9. Drink lot of water. 10. Curd is good for u. 11. Everyday preferably sleep on same time for more details you can consult me.

Hello Lybrate-user, There is no specific reasons for why she has more wax. It is because of the overactiveness of her ceruminous glands. It can also be because of the infection like fungus. Consult an ent and take proper check up before it become serious or cause permanent damage.

How Do You Know If Your Headache Is A Sinus Problem?

MS - ENT, Andhra Medical College, Visakhapatnam
ENT Specialist, Visakhapatnam

Sinusitis is inflammation of the paranasal sinuses, the cavities that produce the mucus necessary for the nasal passages to work effectively.

 The patient may be diagnosed with acute sinusitis. If the following symptoms persist:

  • Facial pain and pressure
  • Blocked nose
  • Nasal discharge
  • Reduced sense of smell
  • Congestion
  • Cough

In more advanced cases, the following symptoms may also be present:

  • Fever
  • Halitosis, or foul-smelling breath
  • Tiredness
  • Toothaches

 These symptoms continue for 12 weeks or longer, it is termed as chronic sinusitis.

If you have the above symptoms then-

  • The doctor will carry out a physical examination and about their symptoms and visually examine the nasal cavity with a light source, or a small, handheld device with a light attached called an otoscope, which can also be used to examine the ears.
  • If symptoms persist, a doctor may refer a person with sinusitis to an ear, nose, and throat specialist (ent) for a more in-depth examination. They may insert an endoscope into the nose, a small, thin, flexible tube with a light and camera attached. This can provide more detailed images.
  • In cases of persistent or severe sinusitis, a ct scan may be needed.
