I had my surgery 4/15/08. I have lost close to 40 lbs. My ankle is NOW deciding to swell daily. When I wake up in the mornings, the swelling has gone down, BUT both feet are both so stiff that I can barely walk. I image its how a body stiffens up after death, to give an example. My heels and toes actually all of it is immobile. Has anyone else ever had this problem? The only time I ever had them swell even at 250 lbs was during 6 plus hour drives in the car. I ended up making an appt with a podiatrist on friday. (I have even taken a dieretic (sp) to see if that would help to no avail. And my choice of tennis shoes vs. flops makes no difference either.

Reenie:

Have you talked to your primary care doctor? I think you should go that route before the podiatrist. Could be something going on there. I would guess that it won't be band related.

Hope you find relief soon. It's hard to be active when you have pain in your feet.

Let us know how you make out.

Go to your PCP. I used to get swelling on a daily basis which was very painful. My I was retaining Fluid and my blood pressure was up. The doctor had to put me on a Water pill which has really helped.

went to doc this am, did xrays, no breaks/fractures. I do have heel spurs but he said it would not cause the severe swelling I have. I have good circulation, bp is perfect. He ordered full labs and put me on presidone to subside the swelling. go back in 3 weeks. He said it could be a case of acute ankle arthritis. YEA!!!!! 32 and arthritis..............bummer.

I'm glad to hear that you went to the doctor and are getting things checked out. It is best to get some answers. If you don't already know, prednisone will cause a temporary weight gain so don't be alarmed if you don't lose while on it.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
