swelling in ankles, feet & lower legs

Hi all--

I am 16 days post-op. My question is that I am suddenly experiencing swelling in my feet, ankles and legs. Not bad, just puffiness. I am on an estrogen patch since surgery (everything removed). Has anyone out there experienced this or care to venture a guess as to what might be going on? I'm thinking it might just be lack of activity, but not sure. Thanks in advance.

B2, if this started suddenly you might want to let your doctor know about it. There are many things that could cause the swelling, so it's best to let your doctor quiz you a bit so he or she can figure out the likely reason and advise you what to do.

I've had some mild puffiness around my ankles a couple of times, both times when I sat in a chair with my legs down for long periods of time. So, lying down with my feet up for 20 minutes followed by walking around the house a bit worked for me both times.
