Few months back I was undergoing a root canal treatment. But due to some difficulties, the operation was left in the middle when tooth was left open. After few days the tooth cracked and it got fractured, so it's swollen. Any solution to get rid of the swollen part in mouth. Previous dr. Suggested clavam 625, combiflam and Ornof oz. And if pain was severe then Tramadol.

We definitely do not advised delaying the root canal treatment for a long time because of this reason only..... the fracture of the tooth can make it non-restorable, if it reaches the root level...... you need to visit a dentist for a proper clinical examination and an x-ray so that the current condition of the tooth can be evaluated, whether it is amenable for restorative treatment or needs extraction.....
You have been advised antibiotics and pain Killers which can only subside the symptoms for a brief duration but cannot cure this problem.....
As a Root canal specialist I suggest you visit a good Endodontist and get the present tooth condition evaluated.If the tooth can be salvaged go ahead and get the treatment completed,if otherwise get it extracted and then replaced.

first you have to consult a dentist then only treatment can be started. many a times patient visit a dentist and no matter what the doctor says they leave the treatment incomplete as soon as pain disappears. you need to value a complete treatment procedure as advised by doctor. consult a dentist as soon as possible tosee if the tooth can be saved or not.
This issue needs to be addressed urgently.The swelling might increase and create more problems due to infection. Kindly seek a doctor or get an opg xray done. I can guide you better then. The tooth needs to be addressed by removal or further treatment.
Medication alone is not the answer. We need to analyze the extent of the fracture & see if it can be saved with a post core procedure or not. Depending on what needs to be done, we need to prescribe medication as required. Good luck
The medication that you are taking will take care of your symptoms like pain and swelling for a while but once you will discontinue the medicine the symptoms will resurface. The ideal treatment plan will be the extraction of the concerned tooth followed by restoration like bridge or implant.
Complete your antibiotic course and visit a dental surgeon for extraction of fractured tooth.
Follow the post extraction precautions properly for uneventful healing of extraction site.
I feel the core problem is your teeth . Probably you should get it extracted and do the course of medicine again .
