I had stapedectomy on 20th June:I had no such issue so you must immediately contact doctor because swelling might be indicative of something else which should be taken care of in the initial stages.Wishing you a very quick recovery.

I had my surgery on June 3rd did not have that issue at all. I also slept in a sitting up position also for a couple of days. Call your doctor for sure!!!

I started sleeping in a sitting position after reading all your posts and the swelling stopped and has since decreased. I just saw my doctor today and he says its fine.

Thanks for your replies ^_^
