 Re: Normal swelling?
Sarah Clayton    7:23pm Oct 6 2017

Hi Kelly,

I don't have my cast on anymore, but I did go to a concert 10 days after having my cast off and standing there for 4 hours definitely didn't help my leg. I wore compression stocking though and you may want to look into those they really help.
I think if you keep it up above your heart the swelling will go down again. I also find that after my physio the leg swells (like the whole calf is bigger) and I think it's just a reaction to it having to do more work.
