Thanks for using health care magic. I read your query and I believe there is certain amount of oedema/swelling at post operative site and popping in the ear may be due to eustachian tube blocking(Tube which connects nose to ear). but still i will suggest you to consult the surgeon as a follow up patient and tell all these complaints.
If still in doubt, please feel free to see a doctor. Please don’t hesitate to consult and ask for any more queries.
With best wishes for a speedy cure
