Hi my dear,

Both Sigmoflam and Sumoflam are pain-killers (NSAD = non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), they are both good to reduce the pain.

Sigmoflam is composed of 3 drugs = aceclophenac + paracetamol + serropeptidase.

Sumoflam is composed of Nimesulide only.

There are many side effects related to the use of these drugs, especially on the stomach, liver and/or kidney. Usually, all the drugs have such side effects.

With regards to diet, it is advisable to eat fresh foods, fruits, vegetables, poultry soups to gain energy.

As for the exercise, talk to your orthopedist as your right thigh bone is broken and had replaced rod. I advise not to overload your leg with exercise according to the specialist advice.

Wish you fast recovery my dear!
