leg swelling post hip surgery.

Doctor,My father aged 83 met with fall on his own and underwent dynamic hip screw surgery on the neck of femur of the left leg two months back. Still he has pain and swelling in both legs. He has diabetis. Before, the injury took place, he was very normal and climbed the stairs to first floor at least 10 times a day. Kindly advise whether the leg swelling is due to diabetics and any additional treatment is required.
