The only thing to do is to call your oral surgeon right away.
Pain and swelling are maximal at about 48 hours after surgery.  Pain and swelling should be going down.

I am not quite sure what you mean as a misaligned jaw, but I do not like the sound of it.

Please call your oral surgeon right away.

Best of luck,
