I have acl replacement surgery on October 21 2015 For

Patient : I have acl replacement surgery on October 21 2015. For the first couple of days after the surgery my leg was swollen from about mid thigh to about mid calf. After those days the swelling started to go away getting better every day. Then last night (November 14th) I noticed a tight feeling in my ankle and noticed that my leg was swollen from about top of my knee all the way to my toes. And it was very noticeable. So I stayed off it the rest of the night thinking maybe I just needed to rest it. Then this morning I woke up to it being even more swollen. It's becoming hard to bend my toes or my ankle and is sore to the touch even. The color of that area is a little different then the rest of my leg also. Is this normal? What could it be? And what should I do?
