Sorry to heard about your health problem.

The painful and swollen leg points towards some fracture or ligament tear.

I need to know your x-ray or CT scan report to comment further.

So you can ask your doctor about providing a report to you as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, you can take ibuprofen like anti-inflammatory medication for five days.

Further management will be decided after checking the report.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
