Tonsillectomy is defined as a surgical process that involves the removal of the tonsils. This may be done for a variety of reasons, including having ongoing episodes of tonsillitis, the persistence of an abscess in the tooth, having enlarged tonsils causing difficulty in swallowing or a growth in the throat. In order to prevent bleeding and dehydration after surgery, it is important to eat soft foods and drink plenty of fluids.
