Follow-up

Most hospitals don’t have a routine concerning planned follow-up visits after the operation. In the event of any complications, please see under the tab Important. However, all tonsil operations are monitored in Sweden via the Quality Registry for Tonsil Surgery. Read more under the tab In-depth. The Quality Registry helps us to improve health care.

You’ll receive two questionnaires, the first after thirty days and the second after six months. The questionnaire received thirty days after the operation lets us know about any complications experienced after the operation. The second questionnaire, received after six months, contains a couple of questions about the presence of any discomfort after the tonsil operation, which we’re also interested to find out about.

It’s of great importance to receive your answers, even if you haven’t experienced any discomfort. It’s important that you answer both questionnaires!
