Anesthesia for: Tonsillectomy is very straightforward. Have any questions for your anesthesiologist written down and ask them during your preop evaluation. If necessary, ask your ENT for a preop anxiolytic. Have a pain control strategy in place, with meds available, before you go to sleep. That will help you manage the pain lastly, if ice cream won't work, try sorbets or cold drinks. Good luck. ...Read more

If you do have anaphylaxis to a stinging insect, you need to consider getting tested by an allergist and obtain allergy shots to protect yourself. At the least , have adrenaline injectors available at all times. ...Read more
