Swollen Feet Accompanied By Post-operative Pain?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We understand the concern you feel.
How old are you / patient? What surgery or surgery on the organ underwent? When was the surgery performed and when did the complaint appear?
Complaints of swollen feet accompanied by postoperative pain can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Deep vein thrombosis (blockage of the veins, usually swelling occurs on one side of the leg and pain in the calf especially if the sole of the foot is bent when the knee joint is straightened, risk factor: long-term immobilization, such as postoperative bed rest)
Excessive fluid intake
Lack of albumin protein levels in blood circulation
Impaired kidney function
Impaired cardiac function
We strongly recommend that you consult the patient to the doctor who treats the patient so that the patient's condition can be immediately evaluated and given appropriate treatment. In addition, patients are advised to:
not hold urine
drink enough water, consult the doctor who treats the patient if it is necessary to limit fluid intake by considering the condition of the patient's heart and kidneys
prop your feet with a pillow when lying down
Limit salt consumption to less than 2 grams per day
