Three weeks since hip replacement, recovery at the hip is going great. Wound healed and no pain in that area. can do all the excercises etc However since end of first week have been troubled with swelling in the foot on same side as op. Hospital put it down to tendonitis, not DVT or blood clot, but still no signs of swelling going down. Has any one had same prob. and whats the solution to relieve pain and swelling in the foot. Tried ice packs, elevation, cant take anti inflammatories as still on blood thinning tabs. appreciate any feedback.
