Shin injury, swelling, hard lump, bruise in foot, pain on flexing. ACL reconstruction done. Treatment?

I hit my shin very hard today on a large table that was bolted to the ground. It broke the skin and immediately began to swell. The swelling is now a hard lump that is 4.5 x3 inches and bruised. I also have bruising in my foot . I am worried because I have a lot of pain when I flex my foot and this is the same leg I had my ACL reconstruction done. It is also very difficult to bear any weight.
