  • Infection
  • Adenoid tissue can sometimes re-grow
  • Bleeding

  • Reaction to anesthesia

Factors that may increase the risk of complications include:

  • Previous adverse reaction to anesthesia
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Submucous cleft palate

Call Your Doctor

After you leave the hospital, contact your doctor if any of the following occurs:

  • A sudden increase in the amount bleeding from the mouth or nose (If your child is swallowing a lot, check the back of their throat with a flashlight to look for blood.)
  • Redness, swelling, increasing pain, or any discharge from the nose or mouth
  • Increased swelling or redness of eyes
  • Signs of infection, including fever and chills
  • Pain that cannot be controlled with the medicines you have been given
  • Uncontrolled nausea or vomiting
