There Is A Movement Of The Wound On The Leg Accompanied By Swelling?
It’s been a week since I had a wound on the back of my leg. It looks dry, but I often feel something moving in my wound area. And every time I stand up, I always feel the blood in my thighs descending to the wound, and it swells until it causes a very painful sore ..
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The wound healing process depends on the type of wound, the extent of the injured area, the mobility of the injured body part, the cleanliness of the wound and other factors such as infection, diabetes mellitus, smoking and others. Wounds on the limbs that move a lot (such as the legs and hands) usually take longer to heal than those on the limbs that are not mobile (such as the face and scalp)
From your description, the wound you suffered on the instep caused swelling in the leg when standing. This leads to a circulatory disorder in the legs so that the back flow of blood through the veins to the heart gets stuck in the instep.
We recommend that you see a doctor to evaluate the condition of the wound and carry out appropriate wound care and find out the cause of the wound.
There are several wound care steps that you can do at home, namely:
1. Compress the wound using sterile gauze cloth moistened with 0.9% NaCl solution for 15 minutes.
2. Elevate the injured leg when you sit or sleep.
3. Eat foods that contain lots of protein such as egg whites and snakehead fish.

Thus, hopefully useful.
