    bound, bloated, swollen

    I would like to make sentences with the word 'bound'. Then, are the following sentences OK?

    1) My mum's feet are bloated due to inactivity and being bed-bound for days in hospital.

    2) He has become wheelchair-bounded after the car accident.

    3) Any other suggestion similar to the above usage of 'bound'?

    4) To describe the feet have been bloated/swollen due to fluid retention caused by kidney failure, shall I say 'bloated feet' or 'swollen feet'?


    Thanks / ju

    My mum's feet are swollen due to physical inactivity and she is bedridden for a few days in a hospital.
    Stomachs can be bloated, but not legs/feet.

    After the accident he was confined to a wheelchair.
