How is tonsillectomy conducted at HMC
Tonsillectomy is performed under general anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure. Children usually stay the night in the hospital for further monitoring.
The specialist cuts the tonsils with a special tool which works on heat to destroy the tissues. The patient does not experience any pain during the operation but it is painful once the anesthesia wears off. The pain is usually in the throat, neck, ears and mouth.
In order to relieve the pain, patients receive pain killers and are advised to drink plenty of fluids, and eat soft food. It is recommended to avoid strenuous sports and rest at home for ten days.
After tonsillectomy, patients must pay attention for signs of bleeding and go to the doctor immediately.
If you cannot swallow and feel that you are dehydrating, or if you do not urinate enough (meaning that you have signs of dehydration) see the doctor.

Adeniodectomy is a common procedure usually performed with tonsillectomy, but is a procedure performed alone as well. It is the removal of the adenoids, a small gland behind the nose and at the top of the throat.
When someone experiences breathing problems or sinus problems and medication has no effect then the doctor can recommend having it removed.
