I had a heart XXXXXXX last Monday and Friday the lymph gland swelled. I put ice on it, but it is still swollen, though
not as much. Maybe a light swelling above the gland. What do you think?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is very likely a reaction to the tissue injury from the procedure...
Infection is possible, but less likely – as it is improving without any intervention.
It will regress and disappear in a week’s time...

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
