Welcome to Health Care Magic
A swollen vein limited to an area is a sign of infection and/or inflammation - thrombophlebitis
Is it the site of venous access during hospitalisation?
If it is progressing, you need to see the cardiologist - there is the question of a clot probably getting dislodged.
If it is recurrent, causes for clotting disorders have to be investigated.
Wishing speedy recovery
