Brief Answer:
Penile doppler scan and anti-inflammatory needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist, i can fully understand your concern.
Your Urologist, after examining your penis, has advised you to avoid sex for 3 weeks.
That means, it should be a very minor injury internally.
Very often, it needs a surgical treatment and the injury is internally repaired.
In case, you've not done a penile doppler ultrasound scan, it must be done.
It gives a good idea of the severity of internal injury.
In conservative treatment, we do advise analgesic, anti-inflammatory tablets.
That will relieve pain fast and swelling also reduces considerably in 2-3 weeks.
In case the pain is still significant, you must ask your Urologist for medication.
Hope your pain subsides quickly.
