Is it normal to have a plugged and ringing ears after myringotomy?

Is it normal to have a plugged ear and ringing after a myringotomy? I came in for a turbinate reduction but my ear was clogged from a cold and since I have a history of tubes and ear issues we decided to do the myringotomy as well on my right ear.

Now my ear is still plugged and is ringing. I can't blow my nose yet because of the turbinate reduction. Will this fullness and ringing go away? Is this normal? I'm having major anxiety about this.
