Yes: If taking antibiotics , after 3 days , might wanna consider changing antibiotic.First 3 days are the worst .You should start to feel progressively better every day thereafter.An antiinfllamatory in combination with the antibiotics usually causes almost complete resolution of these symptoms.

Reevaluation: You may require antibiotics or analgesics. Talk to your Surgeon, the practitioner that is most familiar with your situation.
