What causes fever and fatigue after an adenoid removal surgery?

Hi my son had adenoid removal surgery, since then, he has had a fever and excessive mucus in the nasal cavity. He has used 3 boxes of tissues in five days. His mucus in brownish gold, and heavy. He has vomited twice, and is fatigued. Is this normal after five day post-op?

Hi,

Sometimes the tissues which have gone under the knife can react with inflammation and serous discharge which can present like this. But these symptoms continuing even after 5 days of surgery is something abnormal and I suggest you get back to your ENT surgeon regarding this.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
