Are you sure about the modalities given by you?

Did it pain earlier especially when you looked down or leaned forward?
rishimba 9 years ago
no.there is no extra pain when she looks down or leaned forward.
As she is on wheel chair this possibly is not felt.
Her swelling in the ankle does not decrease and mobility is becoming difficult,
Pl.suggest some remedy
vmshiva 9 years ago
Please try on her LEDUM PALUSTRE 30C every 4 hours, maximum 6 doses.

Wait and watch her response for the next 3 to 4 days and report after 4 days.

Based on her response, a sustained dosage may be given.
