Side effects after tonsils removed

My 3 year old daughter's tonsils was removed and adenoides done a week ago. I find that she is snoring ALOT and is very restless at night. Is this normal?

This is perfectly normal at this stage after the operation as there is still some swelling at the operation site especially where the adenoids were removed. Use Salex nose drops twice daily in each nostril until she is clear. If she is still snoring after another week inform the ENT surgeon about this.
