Edema after the rhino was asleep after three years

Surgeon-phlebologist-lymphologist, surgeon of the first category

My husband had a broken leg three months ago, took a plaster a week ago, still walks on crutches, but the swelling of the leg does not go away. Tell me, please, after what time will the edema fall?

It is necessary to make a duplex scanveins. This will exclude vein thrombosis, which may be a consequence of trauma. If this problem is eliminated, edema should be regarded as lymphatic. Depending on the condition and your capabilities in this case, lymphatic drainage procedures, foot bandaging and selection of compression knitwear are carried out. The edema itself, unfortunately, is unlikely to pass.

Sincerely, Elena Belyanina.
