I am Dr Wadia and I am an Orthopaedic Surgeon. I will try my best to answer your questions today.

I just need some more information please if that's OK.

May I ask how old you are?

Did you have an injury to your foot before the symptoms started, a twisting of your ankle going under you?

Are you able to put weight and walk on your left foot?

Do u have any medical problems such as Diabetes?

Thank you.

That is quite a significant swelling.

I would suggest that you visit your nearest urgent care centre or A&E to get an X-ray done for your foot to make sure there is no fracture.

Until then, you should try and keep your legs elevated over a pillow and rest.

Apply Ice pack over the swollen part, and

Take Ibuprofen and Paracetamol s after meals upto three times a day
