The Palatine tonsils, commonly called a gland, actively protect the human body from infections. When the doctor recommends their removal, it is necessary to think, weigh all the "pros" and "cons" of coming together with a specialist to a reasonable conclusion. After removal of the tonsils often results in significant loss to the body. Without gland as a barrier, people can quite often be sick of broncho-pulmonary diseases, easy to catch the virus.
However, a much greater danger than the cold that emanates from the enlarged and inflamed tonsils, which are a source of chronic streptococcal infection. Her aggravation leads to sore throat: pain in throat and fever.
Frequent sore throats fraught with complications on the kidneys and the heart, they contribute to the development of glomerulonephritis and rheumatic fever. And this is a serious disease, which is not a joke. Therefore it is sometimes wise to remove tonsils instead be subjected to unnecessary risk, especially when it comes to children. Shown or not surgical intervention will be determined by the doctor. His verdict will depend on the overall condition of the human body, frequency of colds, the size of the tonsils.
Surgery itself lasts about ten minutes, accompanied by painful sensations, therefore, be performed under local or General anesthesia. In 7-9 days after surgery, the person returns to normal life.
It should be noted that enlarged tonsils are very delicate topic in which much depends on the experience of the doctor-otolaryngologist. Speaking rationally, we can say that if you can do without surgery, it is best to do, but if the operation is still required, it is necessary to resolve this issue, do not postpone.
