Bike fell on leg

There's swelling and pain on the leg below the knee due to an injury wherein a bike fell on the leg. The x-ray doesn't have any bone injuries. The doctor initially suggested it might be a case of muscle crush as there was excessive swelling and pain. He prescribed Chymoral BR, Osteonec SP, Thrombophob-gel and ice-pack application to the swelling. On a follow up visit 2 days later, the swelling reduced, and the doctor suggested it might be blood clot inside the skin and might dissolve by itself in some days, he advised to take rest, avoid weight on the leg, and watch for some days, after which, if the condition doesn't improve, a cut would have to be made in the leg. He also added L-Cin 750 to the medicines. Now after 2 more days, there isn't any visible improvement in the leg. The swelling is still there, and it still pains even if the leg hangs vertically without any weight on it. Please advice.

Hello, some swelling don't resolve on other hand they may get infected with abcess formation , if it's local edema with just fluid collection it will subside over period of time , if its local collection of blood (hematoma) then incision is required . if there is discharge of pus with local tenderness ,get it drained or else wait.
