I had my tonsils out last Monday and I feel like my right side

Customer Question

I had my tonsils out last Monday and I feel like my right side has heeled but im struggling with my left side. It's hurts to eat, swallow my own saliva, yawning, basically anything. Last night I felt like I had acid poured down my throat and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. I also can't really hear anything out of my left ear which I was told it would wear off but it hasn't.
