I had the same surgery about 20 yrs ago too except mine was the Submandibular Gland. Mine got pretty big too and it hurt.
They took it out through my mouth though, under my jaw bone.
I had a lot of swelling afterward but not much pain.
I went home the same day with an ice pack for the swelling.
It went down by about 3 days and I have never had a problem again.
