I would assume that this was all done by a surgeon / urologist. Surely you must have a followup with your doctor. Please see him / her ASAP as you are obviously concerned about the swelling. Pain and swelling post op is normal, as it is still less than 2 weeks, however, swelling & apin can also mean infection. I suggest you make an appointment and go back to your doctor.
Good luck
