Sore and swollen and numb leg

Patient

Q: Hi. 2 weeks ago I had an injury to my leg from a very hard impact from a steel bar. It came up very bruised and sore. Where the bar actually hit my leg it is now swollen and numb. I had a dr have a look at it and he said it was alright. That it was just a blood clot formed from the injury. I am a bit worried about this as it doesn't seem to be getting any better. The bruising was severe but has now nearly all gone. Can you tell me if this is right or should I see another Dr about it. It scares me to think it is a blood clot as my sister has had lots of blood clots that go to her lungs. Thank you regards Marg
