Hello

It is not normal to have a runny nose after adenoid surgery and i think you will have to get your son examined again by the ent doctor. The running nose can be due to either an allergy or it can also be a recurrence of the adenoid enlargement.
Please meet your ent doctor for confirming this.
Thanks
