Did your physician give you special compression hose to wear during your recovery? Often these are worn for an extended period to prevent swelling. You should contact your doctor immediately.

Thank you for your reply, I did get some compression hose, I'll give it a try, I did get a hold of my doctor but I have not received any calls back. Thank you again for your suggestion. Have a great day.
