  1. Hello...since when is this swelling in feet? What kind of fracture is this? Any treatment suggested? Surgery or conservative?
  2. For feet swelling...keep her legs elevated on 2-3 pillows, so that blood circulation improves. Keep doing toes and ankle movements....up and down.

    Take less intake of salt in diet....be regular with vitamin d supplements.

    Wear cushioned and comfortable footwear. Do not keep legs hanging for long time.
    Avoid standing for long time at one place...keep distributing weight.

    You can also apply cold packs twice in a day.


    For wrist fracture...need to know the kind of fracture and how stable the wrist is...will be able to suggest better afterwards.
