about 3 months ago my sister fractured her foot at work...since they have found a tumor on her heel. she was told to keep elevated and iced till swelling goes down for biopsy. she has been in the bed for 81 days except to go to the bathroom and dr...from her calf to her toes is black. she has lost 34 lbs. she now weighs 101 lb. 5'7" in height. her face is starting to swell as though she is retaining water and she has lost a lot of muscle tone. she is only 50. the dr. said he has only seen this twice in his career. I think she needs a different dr.. can she be losing her foot? is the black normal? weight loss? or am I jumping the gun here? she is eating good but starting to get really depressed.
