I'm 17 days post op and am up and about having a short walk around the block each day too but also still resting lots. I wondered whether any of you have experienced really achy legs?
My right leg started aching last weekend around my calf so I went to the doctors Monday and they checked my calf, measured it etc. They did a wells dvt check online and I came up low risk. There's no swelling, redness, warmth or pitting so he wasn't concerned but told me to ring them if I'm concerned again or ring 999 if I get breathless.
The aching has come and gone during the last few days but yesterday ramped up and I had aching from my calf down my leg and up into my thigh right up to my butt. I woke at 1am with horrendous leg pain and laid there for two hours worrying so in the end we called 111 and spoke to them then the doc called me back. He doesn't think it's dvt as no redness or swelling and from all the check points we went through but said to call my doc for another chat if I'm still concerned over the next few days.
Feel shattered today 😴My leg isn't too bad this morning and is fine when I walk, it's just when I'm resting.
My tummy and groin is really sore today so I don't feel like waking about too much....
