Hi, welcome to health care magic forum , You can have flight one wk after tonsilectomy. Only one thing you have to keep in mind that you may request your doctor to avoid transnasal intubation which may give rise to an acute inflammation of eustachian tube area and may cause problem on early flight.I would personaly follow up patients after a wk of surgery, so before you board you may just see your doctor.
