Deviated nasal septum is one of the most common problem in india. Its not necessary to operate. Allergy can be permanently cured by homeopathy, go for it rather than surgery.

Your bp is low & when you get up it further gets lower, the condition is called postural hypotension. So take plenty of liquids & increase salt in your diet. Even then if you don't get relief then show to a doctor.

Well the voice changes accordingly with the increasing age, so dont worry much about it. However if you wanted to try, you can go for speech therapy to improve your voice quality.

COBALATION IN ENT - A NEW TECHNIQUE BLODLESS SURGERY OF TONSILS ADENOIDS VIA COBALATION

MBBS, MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
COBALATION IN ENT - A NEW TECHNIQUE  BLODLESS SURGERY OF TONSILS ADENOIDS VIA COBALATION

What is coblation tonsillectomy?
Coblation is an advanced technology that uses gentle radio frequency energy with a saline solution to quickly and safely remove tonsils without causing much pain & no bleeding.

How is cobalation tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy done?
This surgery is done under general anaesthesia generally takes about 30 min. The surgeon uses a special cobalation wand which utlizes radio frequency energy to remove tonsil adenoids in a nearly bloodless fashion the patient can go home the same day.

Why is coblation tonsillectomy a better choice?
Older ways of removing the tonsils and adenoids include cold steel method of dissection. These methods could cause extensive pain, bleeding and may damage healthy tissue around the tissue that is removed. Coblation does not remove the tonsils or adenoids by heating or burning preserving healthy surrounding tissue.

What are the benefits of coblation tonsillectomy?
Fewer'bad days patients report a better overall experience with coblation tonsillectomy after surgery when compared to other procedures. Studies show that patient calls and visits to the doctor due to problems after surgery are significantly less with coblation tonsillectomy.
Faster recovery coblation tonsillectomy has been shown in clinical studies to speed a child's return to normal activity and diet. On average, patients return to a normal diet in 2.4 days after coblation, versus 7.6 days after routine cold steel method.

Less pain coblation tonsillectomy has also been shown to decrease pain and use of medications after the procedure.

Adenoidectomy via cobalation
Indications
Difficulty in breathing
Snoring
Obstructive sleep apnea
Rec episodes of cough old

Coblation adenoidectomy is a technique which works at a relatively low temperature to gently dissolve and/or shrink target tissue with minimal thermal damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Coblation technology provides ablation, resection, coagulation of soft tissue and hemostasis of blood vessels in one convenient surgical device.

Advantages
Complete removal of adenoids
No bleeding
Under direct endoscopic vision
No recurrence
Minimal pain with day care procedure
Faster recovery.
