I fell down some stairs at work last week, and I have an avulsion fracture (where a ligament pulls off a piece of bone) in my ankle and one of my foot bones. The doctor told me I can walk on it as long as I wear an air cast, and I actually don't have very much pain. It seems to be healing well. However, something I noticed the day I broke it was some lumpy kind of swollen spots on my calf (not like uniform swelling, but like two distinct "lumpy" bits. They don't stick out very much, but I can see them when I look at the backs of my calves in a mirror. I assumed I must have also hurt my calf from the fall, and figured it would go away after a couple of days. However, it's been a week and it's still the same. It doesn't hurt at all, and they don't feel like hard lumps when I touch them. I'm worried that it could be something else that I just happened to notice because of the injury? It's nowhere near the bones that are injured (it's about halfway between my foot and the back of my knee, and the fracture is on the front of my ankle), and it's not uniform swelling like on my ankle (my whole ankle is swollen, not just a couple of lumps). I don't think it's a blood clot, since it's not painful (either to touch or when I walk) or red, and not very swollen. There is some pressure a couple of inches under it from the air cast, but I don't think that's causing it since I didn't have the cast yet when I first noticed it. Has anyone ever had something like this before or know what it might be?
