How long does brain swelling last after having massive stroke

Hello,

My 24 year old niece had a massive left side brain stroke last week from hitting her neck on the edge of a coffee table.  She damaged the artery and aquired a block clot causing the massive stroke.  She had the surgery to remove pat of her skull for brain swelling and was reaponding well 2 dats after the surgery. She can not talk or move her right side a all.  It is now 4 days after surgery and her brain is still continuing to swell some.  Does anyone know how long the swelling could last for as we are very worried because now that she is swelling again she is not as responsive.  Thank you
Laurie
