Hello Tiffany,
Once a swelling occurs following a hit in the area you have described, it can take a variable time to come back to normal even a couple of months might be needed. Also, the swelling is exaggerated if there has been an underlying fracture which can complicate things a bit. Yes, you should get this checked with a craniomaxillofacial surgeon to note if there are any underlying abnormalities and if the rate of absorption has been adequate.
