Swelling after meningioma surgery

I had surgery to remove my meningioma (olfactory area behind frontal lobes) on 6/16/09.  I was on Decadron 2 weeks before surgery until I was released from the hospital on 6/19/09.  I was sent home with a prednisone dose pack which lasted about 1 week.  Since then, I have not been on any steroids.  I take only Dilantin and advil.  I have swelling on the top of the head below the incision line, a little on the top of the forehead (right side) , a dent followed by more swelling on the right side of the head stopping at the temple.  Everyday, I have more sensation and less numbness.  How long should I expect this swelling to last?  And, what would the indications be for me to be concerned?  I don't see my NS until late August. Thanks.
