Is it normal to feel cloggy for awhile after ear wax has been flushed out?

I was at the doctor for a physical earlier today. The doctor noticed some ear wax buildup and had my ears flushed out. (A disgusting but successful effort.) The nurse who did the flushing said the cloggy/watery feeling would go away "soon," so I didn't think anything of it. But I'm still feeling clogged and muffled, more than I was before the wax was removed.
Is it normal to feel this way. And if it is, how long can I expect before I feel clear again? And if it's not normal, what can I do now since the office is closed for the weekend?
