How to manage swelling of an amputated leg?

Q: What treatment can be administered at home (hot compress, cold pack, etc.) to keep down the swelling of the amputated appendage?

A:You can use ice to reduce the swelling at home and also keep the stump elevated on pillows. I feel you need to get your prosthetic leg checked for proper fittings and also the stump for proper relief.
