Ophthalmologist 's  Response

Sudden swelling in cases of lacrimal duct block patients is due to infection and inflammation. You should visit nearby ophthalmologist who will diagnose this acute attack of dacryocystitis and prescribe you antibiotics and anti inflammatory drugs. In my opinion you should get the surgery done and minimum duration for which now you will have to wait will be 6 weeks after the inflammation subsides.
Take care
