Swelling and tightness
By Lexigirl on 22 Jun 2011
Qustion 1: I am post op day 24. I am mostly straight up and with a bit of mental encouragment I am up straight with a bit of tightness. Since this tightness is not painful and this is PO day 24 should I push through it? Question 2: When is it okay to wear something other than summer/sun dresses. Jeans, capris? Question 3: The tightness is going away spotty. Almost all gone on the right, but a significant amount left on the left side - is this common? Question 4: I went to the gym yesterday and walked on the treadmill for 25 minutes,(1 mile, 2.4 mph, no incline) Dr said this was okay, but wanted to check if anyone else hit the treadmill before day 24? Question 5: What are the guidelines for the compression garment? When can I wear it less than more? I go to my Dr tomorrow but had these questions floating around in my head today...thanks!
