fullness under dressing

Posted by marlene on 4/18/03 at 09:04 (116507)

Is it normal to feel a 'bogginess' and movement of fluid post op? I asked the surgeon and she said it was normal, as long as I didnot have a fever or the dressing was wet...that the swelling was still there and that there may be old blood there also...I am trying to keep flexing the foot and the toes and this is when I feel this fluid movement.
