The disease, in which the inflammatory process affects the laryngeal mucosa, lymph nodes, muscles, soft tissues of the pharynx and palate, is called pharyngitis. It can be acute and chronic, and the symptoms and pharyngitis treatment differ. In the first case, the disease develops rapidly and usually after a while passes, sometimes even without treatment. But most often the disease requires medical therapy, even less often the patient needs surgery. Indications for surgery are usually unsuccessful drug treatment or systematic exposure to recurrent diseases.
The pharyngitis surgery passes quickly enough: the doctor will remove tonsils, will stop a bleeding. The operation is under general or local anesthesia, so you will not feel anything. If your condition after surgery is satisfactory, then in a couple of days you will be discharged.
The operation eliminates the cause of pharyngitis – the pathological secret of the palatine tonsils, irritatingly acting on the pharyngeal mucosa. Correctly performed surgery to remove tonsils by a qualified doctor will not incur problems, the operation will not affect the duration of your life in any way and will not lead to an inadequate functioning of the body. The tonsils are only six, with the removal of two of them there will be nothing catastrophic, the other four are activated and take a protective-barrier function on themselves.
Most often, bleeding may become a complication. In some cases, it is the development of infection or the adverse effects of anesthesia. The statistics show that out of 10,000 one case can go with a complication. Surgery and subsequent pharyngitis hospital treatment have positive consequences: if you do not respond to the body signal for help and do not perform an operation in time, an irreversible process can begin. Inflammation can lead to complications in the heart, kidneys, and joints. Also, the operation will save you from chronic tonsillitis, frequent angina, and other inflammatory processes.
