Shin injury

I was playing football and hurt my shit due to impact with another person's leg. On the day of the injury, there was a big lump like swelling on the shin(on the side), just below the calf. That swelling has somewhat subsided, just a small bony swelling now remains. But I've noticed that my ankle is getting a bit discolored. You can clearly see the difference in the color of the ankle. There is slight pain also when I touch it. Almost no pain while walking. I had show it to an Ortho sometime back who said it would heal. I have been going for physiotherapy for something else, where they do ultrasound for my shin as well, in order to reduce the swelling. Can someone please tell me if this is normal or should I consult a doctor again?
