Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
when you have a laceration , it is considered severe enough.If you meant you have got it sutured , I hope there is no tightened/too much pressure bandaging on the leg, this could lead to some obstruction in blood supply and cause pain.
You must see the doctor immediately as I dont want this to worsen as i sense some signs of acute inflammation or an infection also in your case.Take pain killers for the pain and act very soon by reaching the doctor
Wish you good health
