stiff painful neck after adenoidectomy

My dd (6) had an adenoidectomy and grommets last Friday. She really struggled with anesthetic but is recovering fairly well at home.
However yesterday she said her neck hurt (at the back) and today it seems to have got worse. She has described it as throbbing but struggled to lift herself from lying down without it really hurting. She does not have an overly high temperature and seems to be improving in other ways.
I just wanted to know if anyone has any experience of this after an adenoidectomy (maybe position of head whilst on surgery?) or is it something I should be concerned about.
