Calf injury - severe swelling

Question: Calf injury - severe swelling

My snowmobile ski hit my calf when I had a roll over. I had a ultra sound today and confirmed nothing is torn however my calf has swelled 3 inches bigger than my other leg and I cannot put any pressure on it to walk. It's been three days and other an taking Tylenol 3, keeping it raised above my heart and icing it I don't know how to take the swelling down. The skin is extremely tight and my leg is hot. I need to get back to walking! Any suggestions? Todd
