Had surgery Friday. Should the pain and swelling be getting worse?

I had surgery Friday to remove a cyst from my big toe. I am not to remove the gauze until the dr does it tomorrow. The pain is getting worse. It's swelling more too. I was prescribed hydrocodon and it doesn't work for the pain. I'm just wondering if the pain and swelling should be increasing? Shouldn't it be getting better?

Well its only been a few days, yes the swelling gets worse at first, but it could also be a sign of infection.
