Alcohol causes ..: Peripheral vasodilation, ie increase blood flow. It makes intuitive sense that this could increase blood flow should bleeding occur. I have not seen a study demonstrating that. I recommend my patients not to drink alcohol until they are healed. It would be a nice study to survey all adults who have had tonsillectomies and compare post op bleed rates with consumption of etoh vs non-consumption. ...Read more

Visable bleeding: Blood is an emetic (makes you vomit). Bleeding after tonsillectomy usually occurs 7-10 days after the surgery. If bleeding occurs you will spit out clots, bright red blood, or vomit blood. If this occurs see your surgeon or ER immediately.

How can my surgeon prevent severe post surgery bleeding from tonsillectomy? Is it based upon how well he cauterizes?
Partly: Taking a good history to make sure you are not an easy bleeder and reviewing your meds to make sure none of them interfere with clotting is a good start. All bleeding should be controlled in the OR. A common time for bleeding to occur is when the scabs separate and your surgeon can't control that. He will be available though to help manage the bleeding and recauterizing the area. All the best. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

12 days after my tonsillectomy and I can't stop coughing. I think I have bronchitis. Will this cause bleeding or complications?
DeepThroatInTrouble: It's possible that any explosive action could loosen some blood vessels in the area where the tonsils used to be. At twelve days it's much less likely than at, say, 3 or 4 days, but still possible. Take a good look and make sure it hasn't been oozing. That may be the cause of the cough. In your situation, though, you need a good cough medicine to ease your miserable rehab. Maybe an antibiotic. ...Read more
