In brief: Check Circulation

After an ankle fracture there can be chronic swelling.
That swelling can put pressure on the blood vessels and nerves, causing your mom’s symptoms. Compression therapy may be helpful. If she developed symptoms immediately after the fractures, there may be injury to the blood vessels or nerves. She should see the doctor who treated her and have it checked out.
