I see K91.840 ...or......T81.9XXA if initial encounter for treatment of post tonsillectomy hemorrhage. Hope that helps.

post tonsillectomy hemorrhage

Since tonsillitis is coded to the respiratory system I would choose J95.830, post procedure hemorrhage of a respiratory organ after a respiratory procedure.

I know this is late, but...since Tonsilectomy is in the Digestive System section in the CPT book I agree with K91.840-postprocedrual hemorrhage of a digestive system organ or structure following a digestive system procedure.
