What is Tonsilitis?
You likely know what tonsillectomy is and why the operation is performed. However, since getting your tonsils removed isn’t performed as much as it used to be , I felt it would be wise to review the very basics of what it entails and what it is performed.
The tonsils are the two roundish shaped globs of fat at the back of your throat, that are designed to help stop your body fight an infection. However, tonsils can get inflamed and infected, which is called tonsilitis, which in turn will cause you to be sick. It is a procedure to get your tonsils removed, which will stop further infections of that area.
With the advance of antibiotic medicine, a tonsillectomy is not performed as frequently as it used to be. However, it is still performed for those who suffer from frequent bouts of tonsilitis that are resistant to antibiotics. Also, it is done to help cure loud snoring and sleeping problems. Another reason that it is not performed as much is that studies have indicated that removing tonsils and the and adenoid can result in an increased risk of respiratory problems.
Some of the common symptoms of tonsilitis are:
- Rancid Breath
- Stiff Neck
- Hard to swallow
- Sore throat
- Sensitive Lymph Nodes

Smoking Cigarettes With Tonsillitis
First of all, cigarettes, cigars, or any form of tobacco is not advised if you have tonsilitis. Tobacco smoke is an irritant, which can cause your tonsilitis-related pain to get worse. Additionally, tobacco smoke can cause ” tonsil stones “, which happens when holes in your tonsils expand. Even worse there have been peer-reviewed studies that have indicated that a cigarette smoker may be more prone to having tonsilitis in the first place.

Smoking Cigarettes After Tonsillectomy
Even one or two cigarettes can cause your post-surgery healing to take longer. The reason is that tobacco smoke is known to irritate the throat’s upper airways, and irritation does not help in your after surgery recovery. Smoking right after your operation has also been shown, via a peer-reviewed, medical study to cause an increased chance of bleeding. So, tell your doctor that you area smoker and he or she will advise you on how you can deal with your tobacco withdrawal symptoms.
