Should I go to ER or call my Doctor in the morning ?
I wish I had the perfect answer. Comparing both legs or ankles, how much swelling would you say you have? Did your Doc give you any post-op instructions regarding this? I'd follow those before any other advice. Keep that compression stocking on in case you have swelling without a clot. Wear the 2nd one on your other leg if you have one. That could help you avoid a clot by keeping your circulation functioning correctly. If you start having difficulty breathing and it lasts 15 minutes or more, I say go to the ER.
In addition, if you absolutely won't sleep tonight because you'll worry too much, you might as well go to the ER. Otherwise, my best guess is to call the Doc 1st thing in the morning... if you find you can sleep tonight. I'll be here if you want to respond to my question about the amount of swelling, or anything else. I'll be praying for you!
