Before you or your child have the tonsils or adenoids operation, it is useful to discuss with the surgeon the benefits versus the risks of the operation. If you choose to have the operation, your hospital will provide more information about the specifics of the procedure and recovery.
Having a nosebleed is common in children. Nosebleeds are usually mild and easily treated. Sometimes bleeding can be more severe which is usually in older people, or in people with other medical problems such as blood disorders. Get medical help quickly if the bleeding is severe, or if it does not stop within 20-30 minutes.
