When I was in hospital I insisted on elevating my leg. The other two ladies in my section were both hip replacements so obviously they were not elevating their leg!
I would like to know other people's experience of this...I ask because while I was allowed to do what I wanted, it was mentioned that "the physio's don't like people to put a pillow under the leg". My reply was just that I was ensuring the leg was straight so it was fine. It was not a problem, and no one put any pressure on me to do differently...But I was surprised I was left to my own initiative regarding bearing in mind
How much elevating helps... were you encouraged to elevate your operated leg in hospital?
