Oats Update/Question

Sorry I haven't posted in a couple weeks,I've been busy with school work and the kids. I am 8 weeks post op on Monday from OATS. I have been weight bearing for about 2 weeks now. I still take it slow and easy as much as possible. I am definitly taking it easy because I want this to work. Only pain I get is when I turn my leg a certain way I get a little pain but that's it, no pain when walking.

My big question is when does the swelling stop? I still swells slightly by the end of the day.I am not up on me feet a whole lot and I still elevate it during classes and when I am sitting at home. And most of the swelling is the top of my foot not in the ankle where the suergery was done. Is that normal?

To everyone I have been talking to on here, I've just read your updates and congratulations on your progress!
