if a blood clot traveled before it could cause any swelling, would the pain be completely gone from leg?

No: It is much more likely that clot would remain in the leg. Without symptoms such as swelling and pain a clot is highly unlikely. If it did travel it would travel it would be to the lungs in the form of a pulmonary embolus. This is an extremely serious and life-threatening issue.
