swelling at incision after exercise
« on: October 12, 2008, 10:55:28 PM »
After 11 days post-op, the swelling and fluid in my left leg, calf, ankle and foot finally subsided.  After walking 1/2 mile with crutches, my incision area swelled overnight.  Is this to be expected?  I didn't feel any pain while exercising, but I suppose I overdid it.

It's probably not univerasal, but common. If it doesn't hurt, don't use it as an excuse to stop exercising. Listen to you body and keep it iced.

Wear Out, or Rust Out...take you pick

I continued to ice the area after exercise for about a month. It sure helped.

Steve,

Definitely ice for about 20 minutes post exercise. I'm still icing after cycling and I'm 3+ months
post op from 1st surgery and 2 months post op from the 2nd surgery.

Take care,

spencer
