I would seek advice from your GP to make the cause is not an infection. Have you tried bathing it in warm salt water? Cold compresses to the swollen areas? Anti inflammatory pain killers? Sometimes healing can take a lot longer, but sounds like a professional opinion is advisable.

If you can not see the head yet, i would go back to the doc

Swelling could last for several months.

Circumcision is an operation that injures the penis by removing part of it. The less tissue that is removed the less the injury is. Apparently, you got to keep a lot of your foreskin, which is a blessing.
