In brief: Yes, surgical trauma

does cause swelling which can last for uptp a couple of weeks, BUT it does reduce with passage of time.
Do take th emeds your Surgeon gave you. A Heating pack or an Ice pack would also help. KMAke sure you have looser stools by taking laxatives or stool softners regularly. NSAIDS help with reducing the pain and inflammation, so use them regularly. If getting worse check with your surgeon.
