My sister had a baby by C-section 2 days ago. She was discharged this morning & by this afternoon her feet & ankles have swelled quite a bit. I've got her feet elevated & have called the on call Dr but have gotten no response. Is this ok? Or do we need to go to the E.R.?
After any surgery swelling is common. Keep her feet elevated above her heart. Try to stay off of her feet, but still get up and go to the bathroom and shower. Circulation is also very important so try to walk around a little every 2 hours or so. If there is any pain, redness or hot areas at all to her calves take her to the hospital.
