Page: Adenoidectomy


Patients usually only have mild pain and it is often perceived as coming from the upper throat or ears. The pain lasts for only 4-5 days and is readily relieved with Tylenol.

A small amount of blood-tinged secretions may come out of the nose or mouth for the first day or so and this is normal. Although very unlikely, if a large amount of bleeding occurs or the patient vomits up a large amount of old clotted blood, this should be reported to the doctor immediately or take the patient to the emergency room.

If no tonsillectomy is done, there are no specific dietary restrictions, although clear liquids are recommended for the first few hours because of nausea that may be introduced by the general anesthesia.
