Swelling Of The Legs When Sitting / Hanging For Too Long?
Afternoon, I want to ask. My mother has been undergoing treatment for 2 years on her legs. after about 6 months can not walk and diagnosed spinal loss. after that my mother did Kemo Teraphy 9 times. thank god my mother was able to walk again.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also sorry for your mother's condition. The complaints he experienced in the form of pain when straightening the leg can be caused by various things, including:
Injury to joints
Calcification of joints
Unfortunately indeed, this condition cannot be ascertained if it is not examined directly. Our advice, check your mother's condition at the orthopedic doctor to be ascertained through a history, physical examination and maybe a support in the form of a CT scan or X-ray to see what disorders are present in the legs. Handling later will depend on the results of this examination.
In the meantime, try to stretch your legs while sitting. If it's not a problem to stretch your legs when sitting, maybe the problem comes when your mother's legs are required to support her weight. Respond to this by keeping your mother's weight ideal by providing plenty of vegetable intake and reducing fatty foods. But if even sitting down feels painful if the legs are straightened, then maybe the problem is caused by the other influences we mentioned above. To react to it so as not to swell is not to hang his feet, give a lump when lying down in the form of a pillow under his feet so that his position is higher than the body, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
