    Good morning sir, So sorry about that. Actually it would have been better if you can attach a picture of what you were describing for a clearer description. Nonetheless, swellings after a trauma like the one you have gone through do take some time before they go back their usual state. If it's not painful or giving you other problems apart from the swelling, I will advise you still wait or better still see a Plastic surgeon, they will surely be glad to help. Have a nice day sir
