Hi there...I can understand your concern. The swelling and pain of the calves and ankle could be due to venous insufficiency. But sometimes even other disorders like low protein, right hear failure, renal disease. She will need a detailed clinical examination and further tests including venous doppler examination. So kindly consult a general surgeon for further evaluation.
