Day 3 after tonsillectomy. Very swollen & tender lymph glands causing sore neck, teeth, face, and head. Is this normal? What can I do to relieve pain?

In brief: Yes

If taking antibiotics , after 3 days , might wanna consider changing antibiotic.
First 3 days are the worst .You should start to feel progressively better every day thereafter.An antiinfllamatory in combination with the antibiotics usually causes almost complete resolution of these symptoms.
