About 9 yrs ago I was treated for cholesteatoma thru surgery. I'm having a lot of pain on the same side in my jaw. Could it be related to this?

Cholesteatoma. Hello. The most common presentation of a recurrent cholesteatoma would be drainage. Other symptoms could be hearing loss, ringing and/or dizziness. The jaw pain would most probably not be related but seeing your ENT doctor will confirm this and may even be able to help identify a reason for the discomfort. Good luck.
