My mother who is type 2 diabetic and suffered a stroke in 2014 fell about two weeks ago. She is 76 years of age and the swelling in her legs and feet has not gone down. Her doctor gave her anti-biotics, doubled her water pill intake and gave her a tetanus shot. What actions should we take at this point?
