Swollen And Shivering Legs After A Fracture 10 Years Ago?
, like this, my brother broke a skitar 10 years ago, now his broken leg is swollen and he is shivering. Why?
Good afternoon, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com.
A broken bone 10 years ago, now a broken leg has swollen and the patient is shivering. To determine what happens to your brother, actually a lot of information is needed.
In the past 10 years the leg was broken, was it taken to the hospital for treatment? Are actions taken such as surgery or other actions? are there any traces of surgery left? If it is still open, and it appears red, painful, runny, swollen, it may be from an infection in the part that the operation has performed. However, in fact for a period of 10 years, rarely have an effect now, so the most likely cause is not an event 10 years ago, but there may have been an event that occurred in the last few days.
Was there a wound or scratch or fall in the past few days in the broken leg 10 years ago? Is the swelling red, painful and bruised. Is shivering accompanied by fever, or just shivering.
If the incident is affected by a recent event, swelling in the feet can be caused by several possibilities, namely, an infection in the foot, which is marked by a scar, which eventually causes swelling, pain and bruising. Foot infections that spread throughout the body can cause fever and chills.
In addition, the cause of leg swelling can also be caused by events that cause broken bones back, such as accidents, falls, bumps and others.
Other causes can also be due to a disruption in the body's blood flow which causes blood flow to become blocked and eventually swell in one part, such as in one of the legs. This blockage occurs usually in people who have a history of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, high blood sugar, smoking or who are less mobile (such as stroke patients, or patients who have been hospitalized for a long time).
To find out exactly the cause and treatment of swelling in the legs and chills, you should consult with your nearest surgeon.
Things that can be done to reduce symptoms and prevent severity include:
-compress the swollen part with tap water, compress 3 times a day, for 15 minutes each compress
- resting swollen feet from strenuous activity
-protect feet to prevent being hit hard or fall
Thus, hopefully useful :)
