Blisters After Tonsillectomy 2 Months
I had a tonsilectomy 2 weeks ago and I have blister like bumbs on the roof of my mouth/in the back of my throat. They look like they contain fluid?
Just a thought:
But if a cautery was used to stop the bleeding at the tonsillar sites you may have some residual burns (blisters) Check your throat out with your ENT if these do not resolve in another week to 10 days!
Hope this helps!

Post-tonsillectomy: All sorts of crusting, snot, phlegm, and secretions from mouth, nose, and down the throat are normal and expected for at least a week after surgery, as your body heals the raw 'mucosa' by natural scabbing. Take regularly scheduled pain meds, drink plenty of water, and avoid sports and strenuous activity. Don't worry about secretions unless bleeding. Read more

BLEEDING AND: Infection are the most common complications.Get a more detailed answer ›
Same as kids: If you've had your tonsils completely out, you have a raw surface in your mouth. We tell people to eat a soft diet with minimal chewing so that there is less risk of encouraging bleeding from the raw muscle in the back of the throat. Concentrate on making sure you get enough fluids since that's way more important in the beginning. Also, don't forget your pain medication! Read more
Easier for kids: The younger you are at tonsillectomy, the better you seem to do. Younger kids vs teens, teens vs 20's, 20's vs 30's... The older ones seem to have a worse recovery with longer duration of pain. Sometimes it is because there has been a longer time for scar tissue to build up. Smoking and other medical comorbidities like high blood pressure can also make healing slower or bleeding more likely. Read more
Tonsillectomy: Children routinely do better after all surgeries than adults. With tonsillectomy, the children have had fewer infections, and less resulting scarring, when the surgery is performed.

Sure...: Especially, if it's on you or your children. But, it is a fairly common and safe procedure, especially when done by a board certified ENT surgeon - even better if they're experienced.

Maybe: I would certainly clear this with the docs involved or at least notify them that you did. They have all the meds needed to manage her lungs & airway during the procedure and should be aware of whatever condition she has that might benefit from a nebulized med. Read more
It's routine.: While there may be variations in what one surgeon does vs. Another, it is usually a routine examination, an opportunity to ask any questions and receive prescriptions for postoperative medications (if needed). Many hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers require (by health law) to have a preop exam within a certain time from the surgery day. This can sometimes be done by the primary md as well. Read more
