It is very common to experience swelling after surgery. Everyone is different, sometimes the swelling will take several days to develop. Remember that your body is healing from the surgery and some swelling is normal. The more active you are and the more exercise you perform, the more swelling you may experience.
We do want you to be active and follow your exercise instructions. However, if you are experiencing increased swelling and discomfort it may mean you are doing to much or not elevating your leg enough. You can decrease the swelling by elevating your surgical leg above the level of your face and using ice. This should be done 3-4 times a day for 15 minutes at a time or more. You should call our office if you have swelling that is accompanied by redness and heat, or if the swelling does not resolve after elevating properly.
