Stroke directly can not cause swelling.
It is necessary to think about indirect influence: due to a violation of muscle tone or sensitivity disorders, the limb is constantly in a non-physiological position, the vein outstretched and thereby causing a violation of the outflow of blood and the development of edema.

Requires first attention of the patient andsurrounding, and a little common sense: to see and understand what a typical position of the limb. and what needs to be changed in the habits and movements to improve the blood flow in the limb.

Thanks for the answer.
Sensitivity in the leg is, but most recentlyMom says that there was a feeling of heaviness and tingling. He puts his foot right, walks a little limp. The apartment sometimes walks without a wand. Flexion in joints does not cause pain. When massage the leg is at rest, and earlier there were involuntary movements. Freely moves his fingers on his leg. When the leg begins to ache, it lays down - the leg raises - the unpleasant sensations decrease.
The diet follows the diet number 10
. There was a suspicion of diabetes, but he was ruled out (we continue to measure sugar now).
Advise - in the mother's condition, you can try unloading diets, they will not harm? We read about the rice unloading day - we want to start with it.
Serious problems with the veins were not, but we will try to act in this direction.
Among the drugs there are no diuretics - maybe in part this is also the problem.

The leg puts it right. walks a little limp.

You need to watch not so much on setting the foot atwalking, how many on small displacements of the thigh at rest, primarily near the hip joint. As a rule, edema occurs with hypertension of the adductor muscle of the thigh; it almost does not affect the gait and is not very noticeable from the side, the leg is shifted literally by one centimeter relative to the pelvis, a centimeter closer to the center - the varus position. To train your leg, you can use a simple exercise: the handkerchief is crocked, placed between the hips while standing, and you need to learn how to relax your hips without spreading your feet so that the handkerchief falls.

Everything needs a reasonable approach - if from foodExclude important vitamins and trace elements, weakened the body can cause irreparable harm. Rice unloading day, if not abused, is useful. But in any case, consult a nutritionist.

I want to get your advice about drugs and injections.
You can now start taking Huatos Boluses (doctors did not advise him to combine with akatinol, and the last appointment this week).
Is it now possible to put drippers?
