Continued swollen ankle after calf tear

About 6 weeks ago I heard a pop in my calf and had great pain in my leg. My foot turned purple and along with my calf injury I had a severe swollen ankle. Now that my calf is healing but still hurts a little and I have limited range of movement, when I get up in the morning my ankle looks normal but swells a great deal with an hour of being up. I can see the veins very pronounced in my leg when I first stand, seems odd...but ankle is only sore from swelling? Please help!
