Please see your surgeon

The symptoms that you have are not normal for this stage of the recovery. Please see your surgeon and if not satisfied with the answers, please see an ophthalmologist to examine you for dry eye.

Please contact your surgeon for an assessment.

No these are not normal symptoms.  However, it may be something like swelling and yes you are still swollen after surgery.  There are supportive measures that are helpful while the tincture of time works its magical effects.
