I have a lot of yellow/green mucus stuck to back of throat and swollen uvula. Is there a correlation?

In brief: Yes

Your symptoms are consistent with a viral/bacterial infection and the purulent material (yellow/green mucus) is the body's defense mechanism challenging that infection.
The swollen uvula is part of this infection. A culture of the throat is first, followed by appropriate and specific medical treatment. See your physician.
