In brief: Maybe

Embolization 5 days ago results in clotting of the vessels which can be tender and associated with swelling.
It seems that your pain is excessive, and perhaps an ultrasound is in order to assure that deep venous thrombosis is not present. Check with your physician.

In brief: Too hard to tell

Your leg is certainly not normal.
First you had an avm and secondarily you had embolization. Your doctor should have discussed the routine post operative course with you and you should call him directly if you have any questions.
