After ACDF Cervical neck surgery severe throat pain

My Father had acdf cervical neck surgery 3 disc/levels with spacers put in about a 7 wks ago.  Since he couldnt tilt his head back to put tube strait down throat they used a camera also which puts more discomfort on his throat.  The incision was made in front of neck and that wound has recovered very well.  He has been doing very well very active since the day after with little discomfort which was expected.  All of a sudden his throat is bothering him more than ever and he can hardly swallow or every time he does it feels like swallowing a razor blade and very swollen like a cotton ball stuffed down throat. It is literally bringing tears to his eyes and looks very painful....I was wondering if anyone has any input on if they have any advice or information if this is normal? and why it is was better the first 2 months and is now getting worse???
Thankyou
