    So sorry to hear about this complication sir. She will need all the moral support and car you can muster for her. She may need to be on some constant analgesics to relieve the pain. The size of the leg is due to the period the leg was not used or exercised.

    we really appreciate your comment. however, we will like to know the kind of exercise that she can do. Furthermore she cannot lift up the toes fully but she can conveniently bring the toes down completely. as in bend. the toes down. is there anything we can do to help her with the toes.

    The kind of exercises she can do will be the decision of the physiotherapists after they have assessed her thoroughly. I will not be able to adequately suggest that to you without consultation. Following the exercise schedule her physios prescribe will be my best advise to you. Thank you.
