No: There are other causes for these symptoms, foremost being problems with the knee such as a rupture of a popliteal cyst. Get another opinion.

Not likely: I agree with dr. Krauser, with two negative scans over 30 days, a DVT is no longer your concern. You need to look for other causes for your pain and swelling.
