Polio leg, fell down, blood clot.
Hi Dr. Am Naresh. My right leg is with polio since my childhood. I do walk using hand stick in general. I fell down while walking 11 days back, i could not able to walk that time because of severe pain and blood clotted in my feet. visited orthopaedic, got x-ray and he confirmed there is no fracture but applied POP as there is a blood clot and suggested me to use calcium tablets. Today removed the POP but i still see the blood clot remains same and it spread a bit down in feet as shown in attached pic.  Kindly suggest how this blood clot will get cured. Thanks, Naresh.

I'm sorry to hear about your condition, Naresh. Blood clots can take some time to dissolve on their own, but it's important to monitor them closely as they can sometimes lead to more serious complications like deep vein thrombosis (DVT). I would recommend following up with your orthopaedic doctor to discuss your concerns about the blood clot not improving and to determine if any additional treatment or monitoring is necessary. In the meantime, you can try to elevate your leg when sitting or lying down to help reduce swelling, and avoid sitting or standing for long periods of time. Additionally, you can continue taking the calcium tablets as prescribed by your doctor.

This can happen due to soft tissue injury in foot causing formation of blood clots getting deposited beneath skin. This usually resolves in few weeks
Next Steps
You can apply ice pack over foot, take analgesic for pain relief, apply Thrombophob ointment for reducing bluish discoloration.
