Abstract

The time of oral intake depends on pain which occurs after tonsillectomy. Oral intake starts early if analgesics injected in peritonsillar space preoperatively. This time depends upon efficacy of analgesic drugs if analgesic effect good, oral intake starts earlier and if it is less then duration is more. Preincisional infiltrations of various agents are effective method to reduce post-tonsillectomy pain. This method also effective for earlier start of oral feeding and discharge from the hospital. We recommend the routine use of pre incisional peritonsillar infiltration of various agents in all tonsillectomy cases, irrespective of the age of the patient to reduce the post-tonsillectomy pain and other morbidities.
