How long can I wait with lower leg swelling to see if it goes away without seeing a doctor?

In brief: Not too long

It may be due to edema - accumulation of fluid but you need to be evaluated for the cause.
It could be medications, medical diseases, varicose veins to name a few. There are other things including blood clots in the legs and this needs immediate attention.
