Hello,

I'm afraid the swollen feet is related to injury of coccyx. He should not move. Apply alternating warm and cold compresses. I also suggest to consult with orthopedic specialist again to rule out thrombosis.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
