Dented part in leg

Post an accident, she suffered blood clots and swelling. Post consultation she resorted to rubbing ice on the affected area to reduce the clotting and swelling, which has reduced to a decent extent. However, a part of the lower left leg still has a swelling with minor pain. This apart, there is dent created when pressed in the affected areas, which slowly comes back to normal. The same aggravates during office schedules.
