A Tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the tonsils and tonsils are two small glands located in the back of the throat. While tonsils house white blood cells to help fight infection, but often, the tonsils themselves become infected. Tonsillitis is an infection of the tonsils that can make the tonsils swell and result in a sore throat. As a result, frequent episodes of tonsillitis might be a reason a person needs to have a Tonsillectomy. Some of the common signs of Tonsillectomy include fever, trouble swallowing, swollen glands around the neck, and many more.
HOW IS TONSILLECTOMY DIAGNOSED?
The condition of tonsillitis is common in children and adults. If you've had at least seven cases of tonsillitis or strep in the last year, talk to your doctor about whether a tonsillectomy is an option for you.
HOW IS TONSILLECTOMY TREATED?
As a preparation for the surgery, you will have to stop taking anti-inflammatory medicines at least a two weeks before surgery. You’ll also need to fast after midnight before your tonsillectomy.
