Discoloration after surgery

Anyone know how long the "discoloration" lasts after surgery?? At the beginning, every time I stood up (like for a shower, or cooking, etc....not walking) my surgery foot would turn really really dark purple. It would go away once I sat back down.

I am 4 months post and it is *still* doing that...also when I am sitting doing work at my desk.

I thought by now, that would have resolved itself.

Is anyone else seeing this? If not, when did it finally resolve for you?

My foot was the same way, especially when I was in the shower. I think it went away around the 6 month mark. It's definitely not something to worry about.

Re: Discoloration after surgery

I was just wondering....I noticed that at about 2 or 2 1/2 months it had pretty much gone away and now it seems to have returned....

Re: Discoloration after surgery

My doctor is gone *again* (it is becoming a little frustrating now) and won't be back until next week. I have an appointment on Monday. I did, in the meantime, go to a different site where you can ask a doctor questions and his response was that he would be concerned that it had returned....as I am concerned. I don't know why it is occurring as I am pretty darn healthy...not overweight, no health issues, fairly young..ish...(43)...so it is, to me, odd that this is occurring.........I'll let you know after Monday.

The online doc did say that at this point (4 months post op) the only discoloration I should have would be the incision...that's it.
