Our expert says:
Day 5 post tonsillectomy is usually the worst day in the recovery period, as the pain could get worse before the patient gets any better. It is however not normal to run a fever, or have a cough, so I suggest you contact your
ENT surgeon immediately. He/she will advise you on the way forward, perhaps the opinion of a paediatrician may be of value. Do not ignore these symptoms, as an undiagnosed problem may cause problems, such as bleeding from the wound area.
