Tonsillectomy: As long as the surgeon who performed the procedure examined you postoperatively and reassured you, you should rest easy and follow instructions. After a tonsillectomy scabs and debris are shed and mucus in various colors is not unusual. Swish and spit out warm salt water which should help.
