Have a post-op ultrasound to check your leg. See your provider.

Our advice would be to contact the physician that performed the procedure
ASAP. You may require an ultrasound to rule out a blood clot. Consult with
your physician to determine if the second procedure can be performed as
scheduled.

Swelling post closure procedure is usually normal. However, if there is significant swelling then you should follow up with your vein specialist to ensure that there is no problem. Whether or not you do the other leg is between you and your vein doctor.

Hello - yes, this can be seen immediately after the procedure. It is nearly always temporary, and will resolve. Please wear the compression stockings as you may have been instructed to; they will help "squeeze" the extra blood upwards to reduce the swelling.
