swelling after healing of broken foot

Two years after my son broke his foot in a motorcycle accident his foot is still swelling.  There seems to be some slight swelling most of the time and, at times, more swelling, such as when he has been standing for long periods of time.  Is there anything he can, or should, do about the swelling?

Hello dear,
Has there been a repeat trauma?You should consult a orthopedic physician and again go in for a x-ray to rule out  any malunion or nonunion .Also he can take some NSAID to relieve the pain.
