thank U for the Query,
pain, swelling and difficulty in opening ur mouth are common problems faced after wisdom teeth removal. As days pass by , its keeps healing accordingly and symptoms gradually subside.
the duration is approx 1 month now from the time of ur teeth were extracted and looks like the infection still persists. Advise u to visit the specialist and get it checked at the earliest to avoid the problem from agravating. U will be probably need a change in medication if required and further assesment.
