Yes, you should certainly tell her you would like to be evaluated by a doctor. It is normal for the glands to swell when we are sick because they represent a first line in the body’s defense against illnesses and intruders. Swollen glands may stay a bit swollen after an infection passes but if they persist for longer than a month, they should be certainly checked.
Your mother should take this more seriously if they haven’t subsided. When you do see a doctor, you should tell him/her everything you wrote here and add if you have left something out.
At first they may think that they had swollen due to your second infection but make sure you reported they never subsided after your first illness.
