  • You could ask his Doctor ....he should know. In fact, he should have told you what to expect. DId he?
    or you could GOOGLE it.

  • It is all connected. I would ask the doctor!

  • My son went through the same thing. Earaches frequently follow a tonsillectomy. This earache is not an ear infection but originates from the sore throat as a type of phantom pain. You can treat it with a heating pad or hot water bottle applied to the ear and with pain medication.
