For my surgeries, it has usually taken a full 2 weeks before I notice a difference in feeling better. But it also depends on your swelling. My swelling seemed to take awhile to go down. I would think within the next week or so you will feel better. Whatever the case, I hope it is soon. Just take it easy and don't overdo it. If you push doing things too soon it will cause you to have a setback. It takes a while to get your strength back up to par.

Hugs, Jenny
