Recovery is dependant on the person's state of health etc. It can be 10 days more or less, as you were advised by your ENT specialist. It is in fact very painful and he will have difficulty in swallowing. He will have to take in a lot of fluid, eat soft meals and take edaquate pain relief.
If there are any complications, he will be hospitalised. To assess if he is a bleeder, there are some blood tests that can be done, to confirm this.
