Re: Swelling after Total Knee Replacement
I went to the doctor last week because of the swelling and she said it was because of the excessive bleeding I had (my leg had a lot of black and blue). She said it would take time for my body to absorb all this. I have been weighing myself daily and since last week, I have lost 10 lbs. Has to be the fluid. The swelling is much better now. I have large legs and the Ted hose was digging into my legs, so the doctor said to take them off. They were doing me more harm than good. She also put me on an antibiotic for 10 days. With the swelling it would be a good breeding ground for bacteria. So far, so good. Thanks.
