POST-OPERATIVE INFORMATION

 

  • Expect a sore throat for the first few days to one week.

  • Ensure you drink plenty of water. Avoid hot or spicy foods for the first 3 – 5 days.

  • Please try to avoid coughing or clearing your throat as this can promote bleeding.

  • If you experience bleeding, gargle with ice-cold water for a few minutes. If the bleeding is heavy, go to your nearest emergency department.

  • If your throat swells and breathing becomes difficult, please phone the office or go to your nearest emergency department.

  • A white or grey coloured membrane may form over the surgical site, this is normal and should disappear in 1 – 2 weeks. You may also experience a bad taste or smell in your mouth, this is also normal.
