i had a calf this spring that had a bad swelling problem... even into his side.. he could hardly walk... vet said it most likely was because we didnt get enough of the cord out when we cut him... and to go back in and get it... this could be your calves problem... or
it could be internal bleeding.. when we went back in on my calf, his sack was full of clotted blood... a bunch of it... we was bleeding internally... i kept him up so i could keep him drained if needed, and gave him a tetanus shot and penicillin shots and he finally got over it and all the swelling went away..
i would recommend you contact your vet, and follow his/her advice... that is what i did.
good luck with yours
