How do i reduce swelling in my dogs elbow?

My dog went to the vet for a surgery and now the leg they DIDN’T work on is swollen at the elbow and he just drags that leg, he can not use it at all. If anyone has an advice on what I can do to help my dog out I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    Put some ice in a ziplock bag, and bandage it to stay in place. Give him his favorite treats and toys to stay busy with, Kongs are great.
    The ice should help with the swelling, but I’d call the vet and ask what happened and demand an explanation.
