He was very swollen for a while, yes. We stalled him for a week after the surgery so that he wouldn't have to run around with the herd. Did your vet stitch him? I've heard some don't, oddly...our guy was stitched up. We had a scary episode though when he choked on his hay three hours after the operation...the vet said the sedative would have worn off in 2 hours.
Vet had to come back and deal with that....he's fine now.
