Hello! My twelve years old son has just come back from his tonsillectomy. We decided to do this surgery since he had so many problems with infections in the last two years and our doctor said that his tonsils were so damaged, so they had no function at all. Actually, they just created problems. His doctor prescribed paracetamol and codeine for the next two weeks. Is it the usual therapy given to children after tonsillectomy?

Hello! Yes, it is the usual therapy since paracetamol plus codeine creates more pain relief that paracetamol alone. Your son will probably record pains almost every day in the first week after his surgery but paracetamol-codeine combination will provide sufficient analgesia for him. You can expect your son to be back to his usual activities after ten days. Many studies were done in order to evaluate recovery after tonsillectomy in children and experts carefully checked the safety of drugs used after discharge. So, don’t worry!
