what was the work that you had done? it sounds like you might have a vacuum leak. Unmetered air will lean your exhaust so the O2 sensor will tell the computer to add more fuel. more fuel and more air will raise you rpm. Check for an air leak somewhere. If you had someone change your throttle stop that can raise your rpm also. you might put it on a scanner and do a minimum idle test and see what the idle is with the Idle air control turned off too.
