swollen foot
I had a cast removed 2 weeks ago and my foot and ankle are extremely swollen and discolored. I thought that it would go away after a week but it hasn't. If I put any weight on it, it gets really swollen. The doctor took xrays after he took of the cast and said all was good. Is this normal or should I be worried?

Hello!

You can take pain killers such a ibuprofen and apply ice packs to reduce the pain from stiffness.

These symptoms are due to weeks of immobilisation and this is quite common.

Consider physiotherapy for complete recovery; ask your orthopedician to refer you to a physiotherapist.

Take care!
