Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, after falling, have you seen a doctor? What checks have you gone through? Are there any special treatments that your doctor recommends regarding your complaint?
Swelling in the legs after a fall can occur due to a mild cause, but can also be serious, for example if it involves fractures, joint dislocation, ligament rupture, and various other complications. Before giving a definitive treatment, the doctor will generally carry out a comprehensive clinical evaluation, if necessary, also supported by radiological examinations, such as x-rays, to assess the extent to which the injury you have previously caused damage to your feet. If you have done a doctor's examination and stated there are no serious conditions, chances are you don't need to worry. However, if not, you should not give treatment to your feet carelessly. Check with yourself first to a doctor or surgeon so that you can be given the best treatment.
Regarding your question, generally the bandages used to wrap or immobilize post-injury swollen legs do not need to be removed during sleep. This bandage is intended to immobilize the injured foot so that no tissue damage or swelling occurs. If there are open sores on the skin that previously fell, then a bandage can also be done to stop this bleeding.
Keep using the bandage as recommended by the doctor. So that the swelling in your legs is reduced, you can raise your legs while sleeping, don't massage, don't just massage them carelessly. Always wear clothes and pants that are comfortable and not too tight. If the doctor prescribes the medicine to you, take the medicine according to the doctor's recommendations. Do not forget, if the bandage is dirty or moist, you should change the bandage periodically according to the method your doctor recommends.
That's all our explanation. Hope this helps ...
