Welcome to healthcare magic
How long have you had this swelling? has it been continous since th e injury? Presense of swelling means the injury hasnt healed yet. You will have to see a orthopedician and get it examined, and do the investigations adviced.
Meanwhile try putting your feet in warm water with some salt, if there is discomfort.
