Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
The swelling can be from the recent injury as more likely explanation.
However if your leg was immobilized in splint, then there is risk of DVT in one of the veins.
That can be ruled out by a doppler ultrasound.
The risk is still considered low.
