My foot is still swollen

How long does it take for the swelling to come out of your foot/ankle after surgery? I still have those annoying jolts. How long before all these symptoms disappear?

2 weeks post op

I just had my stitches out and that was a bugger. Typical incision approx 5 inches but the Dr only used 1 stitch. He called it a mattress stitch ? It felt like the technician was digging it out to try and remove it. I received a walking boot made by Aircast. It has an air bladder inside and i can inflate it with a little hand pump. Pretty Cool. I don’t have to go back and see the Dr. for 6 weeks ( 8 weeks post op) at which point he hopes to have me flat footed. I will be removing my own wedges under my heel myself every 2 weeks. A little scary.

bye for now
