Swollen painful left foot, ankle and calf following stroke.

Posted by cantplaymygame

Hello, my 84 yr old Father had a stroke on Christmas eve, (right brain affecting his left side) he has done very well recovering, but one symptom he has had since is swelling in the left lower leg. He already saw his DR about this and is set to see a nuerologist Wednesday. At the time of that DR visit, the swelling was only mild. The swelling is now to the point of pain when he walks, redness, and the skin is hot to the touch. Since the symptoms have gotten so much worse since he saw the DR should he wait until Wednesday? Thank you for your help!
