How long after surgery did symptoms subside

I just had tip of my hyoid bone excised. How long after surgery do you notice that you’re pain free?? I know this is different from Eagles, but basically the same thing. It’s been nearly 3 weeks since surgery and my ear is still hurting like it was before. Of course, this could be pain from surgery as well.

Please tell me your symptoms and how long it took before they subsided? Help!

I'm sorry, but I can't really remember. I know that I had at least some relief immediately after surgery with the first side. With the second side I think it may have taken a little over a month? Actually, maybe it was 6 weeks, because I remember being really worried that it didn't work.

Hang in there, hopefully you're nearing the light at the end of the tunnel!
