Worry if you develop severe pain, even more swelling, and especially loss of pulses in your ankles, and tops of your feet. I f you can move your leg, foot and toes, no pain at rest, and your foot and toes are warm to the touch, your probably good to go. You're generally back to your normal status with in 24 hours.
