In brief: Reevaluation

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

In brief: 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.
