Well I just got mine done today (January 9, 2010) and the person who did mine said it will be about a week til the swelling to go down all the way, but it should start going down within the first couple days. Just keep ice on it the first 3 days and rinse and wash your mouth out the the sea salt solution and just keep the piercing  clean so it doesnt get infected and you can change the jewelry for it in 4 weeks.

I just got mine done four days ago..Third day (yesterday) was WAY bad. So I iced it down..And it went down a bit.. And I've felt and seen it go down. It doesn't really hurt..Except it is digging into my lip on the inside and leaving a circle where the back it... But not so much since the swelling went down. My mom said it SHOULD go down all the way by the end of week two.. I hope I'm a fast healer. :D

I Do not have my monroe but my best friend does and she said it always swelled bad but the worst is for like 3 days to 5 days. Take care of that good or it will get infected too

i just got mine a week ago and its still swollen, not as big as it was when i got it done . Its also digging in to the back of my lip and leaving a circle on my lip, is that normal?

The circle thing is probably a sign that the bar is a little too short and pressing against the inside of your lip, and that'll become quite uncomfortable if you leave it in long term (months and months).

But since you only got your lip pierced pretty recently, I'd leave it in for now.

It needs to heal before you can switch bars, and a longer bar will move around more too - preventing healing, and increasing the likelihood of infection.

yeh, i got it changed about 2 days after i got it pierced because the bar was too short but ever since the bar has been changed the circle hasn't gone. and you can see the bar poking out of my outer lip
