Above, the Thermal Welding Method and bloodless, bladeless tonsillary surgery performed by this method are shown. During surgery, there is very little bleeding and mucosal damage.

Why Patients Feel Pain After Tonsillectomy Operation?

During the operation of the tonsils, more or less non-tonsil muscles and mucous membranes occur. In particular, the operation of classical bipolar surgery can be performed with temperatures ranging from 300 to 400 degrees. In the so-called "Thermal Welding Method", heat damage and thus post-operative pain were minimized. Apart from the tonsillus pit, there is also a muscle group involved in swallowing function. Injuries that may occur in these tissues and other mucosal areas other than heat damage may also increase the amount of pain.

The Importance of Oral Nutrition After Tonsillectomy Operation

Although pain occurs after tonsil surgery; the removal of soft aqueous foods from the mouth and continuous washing of the surgical field and high levels of body water accelerate the recovery. A vicious cycle process may occur, especially in patients who do not consume mouth water because of an increasing pain and a growing sore throat.

Which foods are defeated after tonsillectomy operation?

It is inconvenient to eat acidic, salty and overly spicy foods with hard, hot, sharp edges after the course of tonsil treatment. Such foods may cause damage to the mucosa and deterioration of healing; warm foods may cause dilation of the vessels and the onset of bleeding.

What is the Most Risky Period for Bleeding after Tonsil Surgery?

The first 10 days after the tonsil surgery is the most risky period for bleeding. On the 10th day, hemorrhages occur more frequently on the 10th day due to changes in the collagen structure. Therefore, the first 10 days of nutrition and care is very important.

How to Nutrition After Tonsillectomy Operation?

The use of soft and warm foods with high protein content after oral surgery often accelerates healing (eg meat soup, bone marrow soup, buttermilk, kefir, yogurt ...).
Frequent drinking of water will also keep the surgical site moist. For example, drinking half a glass of water every half an hour (getting up at night with hours and drinking water can accelerate healing in the same way).

Especially after 3 days and a few days after surgery for sleep in the throat after sleep at night can start ear pain. Drinking late water or operating a cold steam engine can reduce this.

Gum chewing can provide an antiseptic secretion, saliva and throat paths, which can accelerate healing.

Ice cream and cold milk desserts in the first day after the course of Tonsil treatment can reduce the pain in the same way.
