Is it normal to have swelling in your thigh, up to your hip at 3 1/2 months out from surgery? I still have pockets of swelling around my knee, which I understand. But occasionally, I will have significant swelling in my thigh and hip area. I don't remember twisting it or particularly overworking that area. Anyone else experience this?
Since it goes away I don't think I'd be too concerned about it. Are you elevating enough? I elevated for at least 6 months after having a time of activity that my knee wasn't used to. I don't remember my hip swelling, though. You can always call your doctor and ask about it if it's concerning you.
