Post Op Tonsillectomy Hemorrhage ICD 10

Cindy Posted Mon 03rd of October, 2016 13:04:16 PM
What is the best ICD 10 code to use for post op Hemorrhage after tonsillectomy. J95.831 does not seem appropriate since the tonsils are not considered part of respiratory system, rather the lymphatic system. The T88 series seems to general. Any help would be appreciated. thank you
