    So sorry. Never any swelling in my foot. Can it be related to high bp or salt intake? Stumped. Hope you get an answer.

    You might want to see your doc about this. I have never that happen to me but maybe a blood clot?? Wouldn't leave it if were it me.

    Is it just the foot that's swollen? No swelling in leg or knee? Are you still icing & elevating? Elevate right up high, above the heart.5

    The Doctor who doesn't understand it, is this your GP or the orthopod who did your op?

    I agree get it checked, if there is no swelling elsewhere & you haven't hurt your ankle or have any problems with your knee, it needs looking at! ASAP

    Hi....  Please get this checked.  Sounds like a vein is blocked, or/and a vein's valves are not working properly.  If it is a clot, it can travel to your brain, or like what happened to me in 2014, gave me a right leg deep vein thrombosis, and bilateral pulmonary embolism. For me it was life threatening and I was a in-patient for a few days and put on cumoden. Anyway, it was diagnosed by ultrasound for the DVT, and contrast CT for the PE. Or, unless you are wearing socks or something that is tight and constricting blood flow down by your foot like a tourniquet. Get it checked!

    Hi deb,

    Yes I am 6mths and have some swelling so keep to wearing cloggies/nothing. Apparently it can take up to a year for all the swelling to disappear if that helps.

    I still have nerve pain instability and various foot pains which alter daily and am concerned that this will not change so a bit of swelling is the least to worry about.
