Tooth ache, prescribed pulpotomy,temporarily filled, pain returned. Healing time?

I recently went to the dentist in alot of pain due to a toothache on the left side of my mouth. I was given a pulpotomy and a temporary medicated filling I didn't have pain after the procedure but now that it has been a couple of days the pain has returned. It hurts more when I'm lying down and when I'm up and about the pain subsides. What could be the problem. Thankyou.

Thanks for asking the query,

You have to wait for the period of one week if there is absence of pain you can get the tooth filled with a permanent restoration.
If there is presence of pain and discomfort i would suggest you to consult the concerned Dentist and get an x-ray done.
Take a course of antibiotics and analgesics.

Hope you find this as helpful,
