@saeternes I am sorry you are having a setback but it will be temporary. I wish I could help but I have come to realize how foggy my memory is about my recovery. I do know I was in pain for about 6 weeks but then everything suddenly improved.
I wish now that when I have had surgeries or procedures that I had kept a journal and recorded my progress. Hindsight is always 20/20.

@contentandwell in addition to getting advice, one reason I am posting on my progress is so I can look back and remember what it was like. I have found that almost no one remembers the first week or two! I often hear from friends who have had the surgery "I got rid of my walker right away" and when I ask what "right away" was they have no idea. Anyway, I just spoke with a nurse who told me the leg swelling all the way up was not uncommon. Unfortunately the laxative made me throw up this morning so I must remember to take it with food.
