Leg edema and fever
Surgeon-phlebologist-lymphologist, surgeon of the first category
I had a fracture of 5 metatarsal bone on the foot. After the cast was removed, there was a strong swelling of the foot, and after several attempts to walk the whole leg began to hurt, especially under the knee and in the ankles, and the fever rose. Feels at the temperature of pain in the leg decreased, as soon as the leg cools or I try to stand on it, my leg begins to grow dull and blue. What is this - a thrombosis? and what should I do, which is better to drink medicine or how to smear a leg?

You need to urgently make a duplex scan of the veins and arteries of the lower extremities. A thrombosis can manifest itself like this.
