Ankle swelling after cast is removed
Hello, I had sprain in my ankle. As swelling and pain was not getting reduced ,I had to get a fibre cast plaster as suggested by doctor.After that, I got relief and swelling and pain has been reduced to a great extent.Now that I have removed my plaster after 10 days, I observed there was a bit of swelling near my ankle,no pain.I can climb stairs but while getting down to stairs i am still feeling uncomfortable.i am wrapping a crape bandage now while walking and still not putting much weight on it.Is it normal to have swelling after cast removal?How will this swelling get cured?Is it something that might get worse?What shall I do now?Please suggest. Thanks in advance.

Hi , it is common to have swelling after getting your cast removed . Just apply an Ankle binder and wear Good Quality sport shoes . Ice Cold fomentation with Limb elevation will reduce the swelling .
