Bumps in throat after Tonsillectomy

So I'm 14 Days Post op and noticed that there are a whole bunch of red bumps... like raised bumps filled with fluid... in the back of my throat where my tonsils used to be. Bit nervous and calling my ENT tomorrow. They almost itch. I can feel it in my ears. And my throat is a bit more sore today than it has been.

Granted I did go back to work today (a daycare) and had to raise my voice so that might have something to do with it.

I also have a cold. Like a really sneezy/runny nose cold. Just in case that might have something to do with it.

Response please? I'm a bit unnerved by this.

Re: Bumps in throat after Tonsillectomy

Have your DR rule out Thrush (mouth infection). I'd also immediately take some probiotics (or eat yogurt with active cultures) to help in case it's due to an imbalance from the antibiotics you took for the tonsillectomy. If that seems to relieve it, it's useful diagnostic info.
