The ultra sound should have told you where the swelling was. It should also tell you if the deep veins are ok. We need to make sure that there is no deep vein thrombosis as that is a risky condition. 3 times swollen should not be taken lightly. Did you have an insect bite or an injury ? Are you a diabetic ?
