In brief: Reevaluation

Swelling can occur especially after a physically taxing day.
If it does not improve, recommend notifying your orthopedic surgeon for followup visit. NSAIDs may be taken to help with reducing swelling

I would still avoid NSAIDS with a bone-tendon-bone reconstruction until cleared 2 do so by surgeon.
