      I've had achilles surgery twice before but the swelling has never been as bad as this. Literally can't make out the bone on the outside of my ankle!

      How long post-surgery are you? I've had a couple of friends who have had DVT's

    I'm six months post op and still can't put the orthotics back in my trainers.  Shoe is too tight.
