Hi and thanks for this query.
Recovery is always a progressive process. Be patient and don't expect results over night else this may cause you to be anxious and be unnecessarily aggressive in pursuing medical services. The most important is that the symptoms, swelling, degree of extension should be gradually improving.
Best way to relief yourself of the pains is to limit moving this leg, take some pains medicationss and get some rest. Continuing with Ice packs will provide extra relief, too. Also, you may consider to get some physiotherapy
