Hip swelling after surgery
Hello, I'm 18 years old, 13 days ago I wasmade plastic PKS, and ten days ago they took off the stitches and let go home. The problem is that after walking and small loads on the leg, the leg is very much swollen - caviar, ankle twice as healthy, the knee feels normal and only slightly swollen.
With what it can be connected? And what should I do? The doctor doing the operation is in the next city and once again I would not want to duck without emergency.
Call the surgeon and come to the consultation. Edema after surgery is quite normal, especially in summer. But, it all depends on his degree.
Are you sure the doctor allowed you to load your foot?
While - minimum program - it does not go withload on the aching leg (ie on crutches), while the calf muscle and other muscles of the lower leg should be actively cut NECESSARY. It is better to lie with your leg raised upwards on the pillows, + elastic banding (with elastic bandage) from the foot and up to the hip, + diuretic (horsetail grass), + cyclo-3-fort 1 tablet 2 times a day (the first couple of days can be up to 2 times), + nimesil for 1 sachet 2 times a day.
