Pain 3 months post-tonsilectomy

I've had chronic respiratory infections just about monthly for the past year - colds, sinus infections, tonsilitis, etc. I had my tonsils taken out in early September, which my surgeon said has healed very well. The only thing is ... I'm still having pain. I've been on Vicodin for chronic throat pain since before the surgery, and I think I may be building up a tolerance from being on it so long. I have had one cold since the surgery , but no more major infections but still I'm in a lot of pain. Between my pcp, my allergist and my ENT, they can't find any sort of underlying problems. They pretty much give me pain meds when I need them, and occasionly an antibiotic/dose pack, but other than that, I'm not getting anywhere. I was diagnosed with non-allergic rhinitis, and I'm taking Singulair, a nose spray and Sudafed daily. I don' know if my sinus issues are related or not.

Anyway, I've been taking pain meds twice a day, but the past few days the pain has been severe and I've had to take it more. The ear pain which was present shortly after surgery is back. I'm just not sure what to do next. I'm so tired of the pain.
