Swelling long after surgery,,,

Posted by Rosemary D. on 7/11/04 at 12:18 (155107)

Had Achillies Tendon repair surgery in May. I'm in open back shoes now but foot swells terribly every day and is painful. The swelling goes down at night when in bed but every morning,,here we go again. Is this normal? I am starting rehab in a few days, hopefully this will help. If anyone has any info. on this please let me know.

The swelling lasts for a very long time months. I would wear some type of elastic support . The physical therapy should help you alot
