Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
What exactly is his injury to the hip? you haven't mentioned, Is he operated for that & what surgery has he undergone? all these are important before commenting ok. dependent edema is quite common in lower llimb injuries, you haven't mentioned his age, rule out any associated kidney ailments also. need to see a good orthopaedician or take a second opinion with all X rays done already
