Patient : I have a broken foot which apparently he did weeks ago but did not feel it because he has nuroprethy in his feet from diabetes. We only knew something was wrong when it sewlled up. They say they can't operate until the sewlling goes down. Why is this? what happens if the swelling doesdn't go down? isn't there a greater risk of doing more damage waiting for surgery. One bone is dislocated and he has at least 2 broken bones on the inside of his left foot.I have renal failure so could this be why my foot stays swollen.
