A few days: Once the abscess is drained, most symptoms go away quickly, within a few days.

It all depends: Swelling after a root canal should be a very rare occurence, and should be monitored very cosely. Antibiotics can be helpful in reducing the swelling, but 3-7 days can be required. You should at least consider that the root canal is ineffective, or did not address the source of the swelling. Request that you be monitored by your dentist that did the root canal or see an endodontist.
Infection: This sounds like a serious dental infection that requires immediate dental care. Call and see the dentist who is treating you right away. If he\she is not available and has no covering dentist, see a physician (24/7 medical facility doctor or er of hospital) as serious infections can be life threatening.See 1 more doctor answer
