Swelling one mi th after surgery

I had an accident resulting in a dislocated ankle and broken fibula, a complex break for which I had surgery with fixation and reduction a month ago. At first I had an open plaster because of the swelling, after two weeks had a closed plaster, and this became too tight again, so am with an open plaster cast again, my next Xray is 10 days from now. The swelling appears undiminished, though I do my best to keep the leg elevated and also some regular exercises during the day.
Is this usual?
