Leg swelling: Persistent pain/swelling in any extremity can indicate that the original injury was more extensive than originally thought, or that there is some vascular, neurological or lymphatic process which has developed problems. You should see your GP for a thorough exam and imaging in order to come up with an adequate treatment plan.
