Brief Answer:
Self resolving innocuous symptoms. no worries

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking
Providing the history this so called electrifying sensation in the buttock does not sound connected to the procedure.accordong to the history posture relation with bending of back causing it makes it more a musculoskeletal and neurological. Just relax take some acetaminophen and muscle relaxants like tizanidine for the relief. If there is no past history of any joint or neurological manifestation then it's fine.lying straight on the operation table with neck extended for the tonsillectomy might cause this strain on lower back and the pain or tingling sensation can be felt in buttocks areas.if you don't have any pain or deranged bowel movement or any urinary complaint then I am sure its nothing to worry about
Ear pain and associated issues are procedure related and symptomatic treatment suffice and they self resolve too so Bo worries.
Chills and rigors are usually instrumentation induced uti in procedures due to catheterization and a urine exam will confirm it. Drink plenty of fluids and rest for a while.
Rest assured tonsillectomy is quite a safe procedure and nothing can happen dangerous or lethal.
Just give this a week to resolve and of the symptoms persisted visit a doctor and let them take care of the issue and correlate it for further management. Right now it can wait.symptomatic treatment would suffice.
I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and don't forget to close the discussion please.
May the odds be ever in your favour.

I have a dear friend whom woke up one morning with a blackened/ red eye lid. There was a slight swelling but no tingle sensation/ numbness. The discoloration goes over her upper eye lid to almost her nose . She did not receive any trauma to the eye. There is no vision problems, and no other apparent symptoms? I am worried that this could be a secondary condition? I have researched this , and I have come up with no ideas. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance!
