Keep it up: Best thing to do is to ask the doctor who did the Procedure. In the meantime, put a towel across your thighs so your scrotum is elevated. That will make the swelling go away faster.

Do nothing...: At this stage of postoperative resolution, 11 days after vasectomy, time and patience are the surest and most logical way of care; in other words, no care is the best care as long as getting better and becoming smaller slowly but surely day by day, week by week, or month by month. Occasionally, a residual node may persist forever. So, leave it alone. More? Ask the surgeon.
