Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.
I have gone through your query regarding stiff and sore neck and throat, chills but no fever, and ear pain. As you said these all symptoms arises after 7 days of normal recovery from septoplasty
, nasal valve repair, bilateral turbinate reduction and adenoidectomy
. Initially you were given antibiotic cefdinir
and you got good responce but after 7 days on repeatition of same antibiotic you are not getting responce.
Your all symptoms are related to secondary infection in operated field and pain in the ear is also referred pain
due to obstruction of eustachian tube as because of adenoidectomy nasopharyny may be swollen and at the same place lies the opening of this tube.
To manage it there is need of change of antibiotic idialy this should be choosen according to culture and sensitivity of throat swab, but this will take about 72 hours, therefore till the culture report is awaited you may take antibiotic augmentin
(625 mg) thrice daily. but you should do this after the concent of your treating doctor.
I hope this will help you.
