Welcome at JA.
Your hematoma is at present in that place from where there goes a large vein(saphenous vein),this vein drains that major part of limb.
It looks from your details that most probably this hematoma is putting back pressure over this vein.
This is creating difficulty in blood to coming back to heart.
The swelling in leg & foot can also be there as an inflammatory swelling due to presence of infection in thisgh.
If this hematoma is large then you should have get it drained by your surgeon.The infected hematoma should be drained as early as possible.
At present you may keep your limb elevated on pillow & should take a good anti inflammatory agent like motrin.
Hope this will help you.

Thank you so much. I haven't had much luck getting anyone to take the leg swelling seriously, over the phone. I will go to the doctor tomorrow and ask them to look at it again.
