throat polyp operation recovery

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 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
