Lip piercing swelling: Stud or ring?

I just got my lip pierced about two weeks ago. When I got it done, the man said it would be better to get a stud instead of a ring to start with because of the swelling. Well at night when it swells, the back of the stud digs into the inside of my lip. I heard the swelling is normal, but maybe not to this extreme. I keep it really clean and I'm sure it's not infected. But I'm afraid if it keeps happening its going to dig so deep it'll come out the other side. Is there anything I can do to keep this from happening? Would it be safe to put in a ring this soon in the healing process?
