Brief Answer:
Epidydimitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

With recent recovery from urine infection, I first suspect epididymis inflammation.
You need to get antibiotics for this.
Please see your doctor for a prescription. Once the infection treated the swelling would resolve on its own. Epididymis infection takes longer time to treat because the antibiotics would not penetrate easily.
Sometimes Intravenous therapy given.
Good health.
