Remedies needed for broken elbow plus surgery in 7yr old
My daughter just had surgery last night to repair 2 fractures to her elbow joint (playground accident). Essentially she had to sit at home for 5 days to wait for the swelling to go down taking opiates and motrin, to a 3 hour surgery last night, and now we are home and can focus on healing.
I'm hoping for some wise women remedies to address the physical trauma to the bones and soft tissue, help her heal thoroughly, and to help her body process all the meds that she has been given last week and last night.
We are always wary of the quick drug solution (fevers, infections, etc) unless truly necessary, and are really conscious with our diets and habits. I really prefer to treat with herbs, supplements, and other holistic modalities.
I'm giving her some homeopathics for surgery and broken bones, arnica, and will be picking up some chewable calcium and comfrey tea. Also want to see if bioflavinoids would be good for all the hemotomas at this acute stage.
