Have you visited a dermatologist? Or did you take advise from the same doctor who operated on your father's leg? There is a probability that the swelling is because of obstruction to the lymphatic drainage. Although I can't be certain without having a look. Please visit a dermatologist near you. Cure outer no cure at least you'll get to know why it happened.
