About two week ago I had a root canal extraction and bone

Customer Question

Hi. About two week ago I had a root canal extraction and bone graft done on my lower left molar. Everything was healing well when I went back to have the stitches removed. Three days ago I started experiencing lots of pain on that side. Also noticed a swollen lymph node on that same side. I went back to the dentist yesterday and he said everything was fine, gave me antibiotics and said to take them. Okay, well the pain has spread to my left temple to the point where it feels like my left eye is swollen. He said all of this was normal. Is it normal?
