5-7 days.: I find it hard to believe that a 46 year old person would need an adenoidectomy. At that age the adenoid (lymphoid tissue in the back of the nose) usually has atrophied. Make sure of the histologist diagnosis. If the tissue is benign, you should be able to exercise in 5 to 7 days.

Adenoidectomy : Is done through the mouth under general anesthesia. Adenoids are located in the upper throat just above/behind the soft palate/uvula. A dental mirror is used to see the area.Removal can be done with a microdebrider that cuts and suctions tiny pieces of tissue out. Another way is to remove the adenoids using a curette. Adenoids can also be be vaporized using coblation.

20-30 minutes.: The surgery itself is usually around 20-30 minutes, but the time needed for anesthesia--going to sleep and waking up--is about the same. Therefore, total time can be 45-60 min in the operating room.
