Well as you describe,possible causes may include Venous insufficiency,lymphatic obstruction,Cellulitis.

So you should elevate your leg.

Also monitor your blood pressure.

If your swelling is spreading to other areas then visit ER as your symptoms shouldn't be ignored and require prompt management.

Color doppler study of lower limbs can be done.

Hope this helps.
