First of all, you must doduplex scanning of veins of lower extremities. With the exception of the pathology of the veins, this swelling should be regarded as lymphedema after trauma. In this case, you need to start with the bandaging of the foot and wearing medical compression jersey. And if the effect is not - plan to conduct a course of lymphatic drainage procedures (manual lymph drainage and pneumocompression in a specialized phlebological center).

Sincerely, Elena Belyanina.
