    Bleeding after tonsillectomy and UPPP - please help:(

    I had tonsillectomy and UPPP done on Friday. It's been a nightmare, I was discharged from the hospital with over the counter painkillers and by Monday I was begging my GP for something stronger. She prescribed Tramadol, which was brilliant.

    By day 5 I thought I'm out of the woods, I felt much better. However, I woke up at night and I thought I was bleeding and I was in terrible pain...before I had a chance to act on it, I fell asleep again and I was fine in the morning. Day 6, I went to the pharmacy which is like 5 Min walk and i stared bleeding on my way there it was the most terrifying experience ever....I got some ice cold water, and was sipping on it for about 10 Min trying to calm down, and the bleeding finally stopped.

    Now, I'm not sure what to do...why am I bleeding? Is this normal? What do I do if it happens again? Shall I just try to control it, or do I need to see someone? I'm also scared to eat, before I was ok eating pasta, soup with bread, mashed I'm terrified that any kind of solid food will make me bleed again any advice would be much appreciated
