5 days ago i had a medium sized polyp removed from the right side of my throat (just near to my tonsil), it was painful, but no more than i expected, and after 2 days, it started to feel like it was getting betetr. the pain was lessoning. im now on day 5 and its got alot worse, but almost like a different kind of pain. my tongue has swollen very slightly, and i have ear ache on the side where i had the operation. im taking the strongest dissolvable pain killers in the pharmacy. i was shocked to know that the hopsital didnt want to see me for a check up, and didnt even call me the next day to see how i was after the anesthetic. is this a normal healing process? to get better ish then worse etc? and is earache normal? please help!

i have got a nose polyp growth in both my nose. its come to a point where it is bleeding ,i see blood when i clean up my throat and spit, i am also experiencing ear pain. is nasal polyps and ear pain in any way related.
I had a polyp removed friday and this is monday. It was in my throat and very small but after the removal my ear ached and I had to take 2 pills to relieve it. I took one the next day and have been gargleling with salt water. The doctor didn't tell me to do this but I think it is helping because the pain is much less now and getting better all the time.
My advice to you would be to see a doctor if it is getting worse. You might have an infection. Try the salt water mean while. I always threaten to sue the doc if they won't let me in right away when I had a HMO. Now I don't have to worry because I have different ins. Good luck to you
wow...that sounds crazy but i hope it worked out and you got better.
for about a week now i have been feeling something in my throat. nothing big but that's not normal so a coworker told me to have it looked at. do they get bigger if untreated???at first i kept thinking if i drank something it would wash away but apparently not! lol guess i should make an appointment :(
