Swelling in leg post TT
You should definitely see your plastic surgeon now or better yet , a good internist or just go to the ER. Swelling in the leg post TT can be caused by a blood clot in the leg, which can sometimes progress to other more serious conditions , such as a pulmonary embolism. The first test that the ER might do is a Doppler venous ultrasound which
is painless and can easily diagnose a blood clot.
Please follow up on this condition today.
