6 year old had tonsillectomy and adenoids removed. Have wheezing. Is it normal after the surgery?

My 6 yr old had tonsillectomy and adenoids removed yesterday. Last night she woke up complaining she could not breathe. She was obviously wheezing . So I gave her a breathing treatment(albuterol) and since then seems to continue to have this wheeze and cough. She does not have asthma. Is able to get fluids down as well. Is this normal after this type of surgery?
