Same Pain After Adult Tonsillectomy

I'm 37 and had a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy 5 weeks ago due to constant tonsil infections and living on antibiotics.  Before having the surgery I had sore throat pain, like a dry throat in the morning on the right side, and pain in the right ear for months but ear was always clear.  After this horrific surgery, the ENT said I've recoved... but I still have the throat pain and the ear still hurts.  He insists there is no infection or swelling in the ear. I am beyond frustrated!  What could be the problem?  Thanks.
