Swelling and Itching
« on: March 27, 2012, 09:59:17 PM »
I am 8 days post-op LHR.  Today my hip swelled up so much it looks like a giant Country Ham.  I don't really have an unusual amount of pain.  I knew there would be some swelling, but I did not anticipate this.  The hip and thigh feel hard as cement.  I have no swelling below the knee.

Also -- I am itchy all over.  I have been told this is a reaction to the anesthesia. 

Has anybody else experienced this type of swelling or itchiness?
