Swollen parotid gland, cheek pain, unable to open mouth. Operation scheduled. Mumps symptoms?

2 weeks ago I was on antibiotics as I had a swollen gland and had blister like pain in my cheek and couldn t open my mouth. The GP gave me antibiotics and said I had an infected parotid gland . It is now 2 weeks since I finished the course and now I am getting the early stages of the same pain but at the other side of the cheek, as I physically feel fine could this just be another parotid gland infection or possibly mumps? I am slightly anxious as I am going in for an operation on Monday and mumps is the last thing I want. Thanks

Hello, thank you for communicating with us for your problem. As per the brief history you have given us it cant be mumps as the immunity is developed against the infection. and further i would suggest you not to get tense as there will be investigations before the surgery that will clear your doubt. tell the treating doctor about this infection. Please don’t hesitate to consult and ask for any more queries. I will be pleased to answer.
With best wishes for a speedy cure
