Normal: The recovery time for jaw surgery can easily surpass 3 weeks. Be patient. At the same time, you are still susceptible to colds, allergies, etc. Also, it is normal for your teeth to still hurt. When in doubt, CALL YOUR SURGEON. We like to be kept involved in our patients recovery process.

See PCP: Sounds like a Medical, not a Dental, problem. Not surprising that your surgical site may feel sore.
Dr. Louis Gallia
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 45 years experience
URI: Sounds like an upper respiratory infection. See MD. If your tooth pain is on the same side as your jaw surgery, I would see your oral surgeon as a precaution.
