Swelling !!..what is it ?
« on: 22/04/2007 19:55:49 »
On our way back from going out last night , as we were walking to the car.....wifey fell over and twisted her ankle and knee badly !

Before we had a chance to apply a bag of frozen peas her ankle had swollen well big !!

What is it exactly that has filled her ankle with swelling luff and joy ?

Is it supposed to be the body repairing itself ?...if so...then why is it advisable to put a cold compress onto it ?

...but what is it and where does it come from ?



Unlike wifey...perhaps ewe can take a  'leap ' down ' Answer Avenue ' and let me know !!

what about seeing a doctor to fix it
avoiding troubles in the future hours,
days, months?

Well there is a lot of sand but it is from
my sons toy sand pit !

her ankle seems to be healing and she is walking on it albeit slowly !

I think she'll be Ok.

Thanks Iko.
