Just curious is it possible to have a broken pelvis with no swelling?.

Yes: Yes because the swelling is deep and doesn't show. Especially with non-displaced or impacted fractures. Fractures of the superior and inferior pubic rami are common in the elderly with osteoporosis and there is no visible swelling.
