In brief: Residual infection

The swelling will take a couple of days to resolve.
Stay on the antibiotics as prescribed and follow up with your dentist or the endodontist.

In brief: Ok

I'm unsure what your question is.
It sounds like you are getting better after you had a root canal retreated but i'm not sure. After a root canal is retreated, some pain for a few days is normal. Call your dentist if you have any question.

In brief: Retreatment

This is normal for this type of situation especially if the root canal was instrumented and filled before the antibiotics had time to kick in.
Take what your dentist rxd for pain or Motrin if you were not given an rx. It will get better just needs time.
