This probably might be due to post tonsillectomy bleeding.It happens about a week after the surgery.It is not quite easy to make a measure of how much blood you are losing.So it better to visit ER immediately because if needed , bleeding has to be stopped by surgical approach.

ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
If you feel the blood is flowing behind the operated area, please, get yourself examined by the operated surgeon immediately. The pain and difficulty in swallowing will persist for another 2-3 weeks post surgery. Please do follow the advice of your doctor.
Take care
