Legs and feet swollen badly almost one week post op?

Hi guys! I had a laproscopic appendectomy and also had endometriosis removed from my right ovary almost a week ago. The last two days I have had severe swelling in my legs and feet....more so in my left leg/foot and much worse by night time. So swollen by night time that my fingers leave an indentation is I push on them. Is this normal? What can I do to help it? Thanks ladies!

You need to call your doctor.

Perhaps it is nothing and all you need to do is keep your legs propped up when you are lying down or sitting up. But check with your doctor. Perhaps he/she can prescribe a water bill if it is not something like a blood clot.

Good luck!
