Does the swelling form pits if you press in it with a finger?
Any other symptoms?
Is the area hot to the touch?
Any fever etc?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
thank you for that additional information
Is there anything that might show up in a photograph?
Well....given what you have posted, and without doing a complete exam.
That being said, it does not sound like you are suffering from anything that requires immediate medical attention such as a clot, infection, mass or systemic issue.
So. What should you do?
Pretty much what you have already been doing: Elevation and try to stay off your feet.
If issues persist then a visit to your GP on Monday would be in order. However, I expect things to be back to normal by then.
Does this make sense to you?
