Post Operative Instructions



Home | For Patients | Post Operative Instructions
Hospital Stay
The patient stays in the hospital a day or two after the surgery.

Post operative medications
Patient goes home only with painkillers

The patient generally resumes to normal diet the day after the surgery

Wound Care and general instructions
Frequent coughing and clearing the throat should be avoided.

Objectionable mouth odor may be noted and is relieved by abundant fluid intake.

A white or gray membrane on the surgical site is normal and should disappear in 1 to 2 weeks.

Patients who have undergone UPPP under general anesthesia will notice sutures in the soft palate. These do       not need removal; they are absorbable sutures.

Earache or a slight fever is expected and may be disregarded unless condition worsens.

In a small percentage of patients, bleeding may occur after 7 to 10 days. If this happens to you, do not       become excited, for this bleeding usually stops spontaneously. Remain quiet, lie down, and spit the blood       out gently. Gargle gently with ice water and remain quiet. If the bleeding does not stop promptly, call your       doctor. If the doctor is not available and bleeding continues, go to the nearest emergency room.

Routine Activities
The patient may return to work the day after surgery, if desired; however, one should not drive, operate       machinery.

Post operative visits
The first post operative visit is on the 10th day after the surgery and the 2nd a month later.

Call Us
If the pain becomes severe and intolerable

If bleeding from the mouth becomes uncontrollable.

Otology Master Class
From the Organizing desk

Dear friends,

MESIARC CME is here again. We have always strived to bring you the best in Otology, over the past 10 years, Our live surgery workshops, have focused on cutting edge surgery, detailed teaching, scientific deliberations of the highest order and top class video coverage from one of the most advanced otological theatre suites in the world this time, we are focusing on the enigma of budding otologists - cholesteatoma and Otosclerosis. Two very diverse conditions, but requiring surgical expertise of the highest order to deliver good results. The two-day surgical workshops will feature both myself and a luminary in Otology, Dr. Ashesh Bhumker from Thane, Mumbai and we would be demonstrating in detail the finer aspects of surgical techniques that can be adapted by a keen otologist to sustain good results over time.

We have lined up an array of diverse cases- and the techniques that we intend to demonstrate include minimal access stapedotomy, Laser stapes surgery, stapes surgery with stapes head amputation for tendon preservation, bone obliteration technique for cholesteatoma, a variety of grafting techniques, intact canal wall tympanoplasty for limited cholesteatoma and a series of revision surgeries.

Do send in your registrations early as we have to limit attendance to 70 seats. A smaller crowd is ideal for active discussions which is something so characteristic of MESIARC CME programs and we do not want to deviate from that agenda.

Yours truly,

Manoj MP  
Organizing chairman

Otology in Perspective Live Surgery 2015
From the Organizing desk

Mesiarc brings you a unique live surgical workshop- a demonstration of both endoscopic and microscopic otologic skills.

Otologic surgery is special for its intricate anatomy, extreme precision and attention to detail. Traditionally done with the operating microscope, and now in some centers across the world with the endoscope, the repetoire of the art is widening.

Confusion persists. Advocates of endoscopic work claim that the microscope is passe, and traditional surgeons laugh off the ability of the one handed

The truth lies somewhere in between; there are specific conditions that require either of both of the techniques. Dogmatism, they say, is the end of science.

Mesiarc brings you a unique live surgical workshop- a demonstration of both endoscopic and microscopic otologic skills.

MESIARC has always stood for dissipation of knowledge and the live surgical workshops are not pubilicity events, nor are they grandiose. We have just one agenda- to educate.

This workshop with a difference aims to demonstrate both endoscopic and microsopic skills in otologic surgery, while attempting to define which is more suitable for what. Do come and enjoy!

Yours truly,

Manoj MP  
Organizing chairman
