What can I expect after surgery?
  • Apply ice to the external area for the first 24 to 72 hours as needed to reduce swelling. Place medication as prescribed on the surface.
  • Do not eat sharp, spicy or very hot foods. Avoid acidic drinks or foods and avoid straws for 2 weeks. Eat a soft diet for approximately 2 weeks with cold fluids and cold desserts. Drink cool liquids for the first several days.
  • After the surgery, you may have a sore throat.  This is usually secondary to the intubation needed with the general anesthetic during surgery and usually improves after 1 to 3 days.
  • Do not take aspirin, blood thinners, or anti-inflammatory medications (ie. Ibuprofen) for two weeks before and two weeks after surgery. Also, avoid herbal medications.  These medications can thin your blood and increase your chance of serious bleeding. Tylenol use before and after surgery is not a problem. 
  • Contact the office, or after hours go to the nearest Emergency Department, if you have any shortness of breath.
  • If sutures are present, try not to pull or chew on them.
