I had surgery on this foot 5 years ago, but below the ankle.
anything i can do for the swelling? is this something to worry about?
I've been thinking about your post and drawing a blank.
I would rule out the symptoms of a blood clot. Just to be safe.
What about gout?
I would assume it's probably a muscle/ligament issue that maybe isn't causing a lot pain?
And eventually ask a doc about it.
That's all I got.
I hate to say it. Did you go to the doctor? Is your ankle swelling, throbbing, have fever red? If it is go have a blood test to see if you have gout. I just got gout and it is painful to were I can not even walk. If that is not the case it could be a number of things to the gout family.. Good luck and I will pray that you get better.
