In the postoperative period, usually on the day of surgery, mild or more severe nosebleeds, bloody sputum, bloody vomit, cough stimuli, cough, and restlessness may occur in an anesthetized patient. In the days after surgery, weakness, drowsiness, dizziness, fever, headache, and nausea may occur due to varying amounts of blood loss, surgical stress, and medications used. After surgery, a blood clot in the nose, swelling of the nasal mucosa, can also cause nasal congestion.
After adenoidectomy, the pain is minimal, typical for 1-2 days after surgery and can be well treated with oral analgesics.
In the case of uncomplicated surgery, you can return home one day after the procedure. In the 2 weeks after the operation, a health-conscious lifestyle and rest are recommended, it is necessary to avoid activities that raise blood pressure and cause head bleeding, as these can cause post-bleeding. Do not blow your nose during this time. No dietary restriction is required, a lot of fluids should be consumed, alcohol consumption is not allowed.
In the case of uncomplicated recovery, you can return to your job after 14 days, the time of full recovery, the complaint-free state is approx. 3 weeks. Serious physical work, sports from the 4th week onwards are allowed.
We recommend that you do not travel to a place where there is no health facility nearby or travel by plane for two weeks after surgery. This is suggested because the possible post-bleeding must be treated within a relatively short period.
