It looks like no further significant changes are now possible for Comet SWAN given these images taken 3 days apart, using similar total exposure times (~37 min), and taken almost symmetrically placed either side of the time of perihelion. Atmospheric conditions were rather similar also with the target located some 10 and 7 above the horizon.

The remnant appears to comprise a tenuous cloud of dust and debris with no evidence of any pseudonucleus, nor any fragments or condensations within the coma.
