Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
IT SEEMS THAT YOU HAVE SUFFERED A SOFT TISSUE INJURY IN YOUR CALF DUE TO THE FALL. SINCE THE SWELLING HAS DECREASED, THE PAIN IS LIKELY TO SUBSIDE IN NEXT FEW DAYS. DOING A HOT FOMENTATION AND USING A CREPE BANDAGE WILL BE HELPFUL.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,
