Can adenoid and tonsil surgery cause liquid to pour out of nose while drinking?

I got my adenoids and tonsils out almost a month ago, both were incredibly large- my doctor said my adenoids were the largest she had ever seen. Now anytime i drink something, it goes up my nose and sometimes pours out of my nose, is this a side effect of the surgery, should i go to my doctor or will it stop?
