Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Swelling in the legs can indeed be caused by surgery, but this does not occur in all operations, and usually occurs with a distance not too far from the time of surgery. For example due to negligence during surgery, bacterial infection during or after surgery on several related structures, and because of prolonged sitting during the recovery period.
But in your case, if you experience within a month's difference from the operation, this possibility is caused by other things, including:
Elephant foot disease
And it could also be for other reasons depending on the results of the examination. Our advice, you should immediately check your complaint with a general practitioner or may go directly to the doctor of internal medicine to do a history, physical examination, and possibly support if deemed necessary. The handling that you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Meanwhile, considering that there is now a corona outbreak, limit activities outside the home if it is not too important, routinely wash hands, maintain endurance with adequate rest, and avoid cigarette smoke. So, hopefully answering your question.
