Re: Severe ankle swelling after c-section

I stayed swollen for two weeks after having a c section. It can be dangerous to drop all that water that has been pumped into your system too fast. I would call your doc, but it might be the water that they pumped into you for the c section.

I had the exact same swelling as well as the preeclampsia. It's super annoying but it does go away on its own. As long as you don't have any pain in your calves that suggest a blood clot then it should go down in the next 7-10 days.

Re: Severe ankle swelling after c-section

I couldnt wear shoes for 2.5 weeks! My feet were so swollen and sore. The dr told me it was from all the iv fluids they give before and after c-section.

Re: Severe ankle swelling after c-section

I am 4 days post-c/s and am now swollen to the point of irritation. Feet, calves, legs...all from the TONS of fluids dumped in. I agree with everyone else. Check with doc - likely just fluids that will go away on their own. But VERY annoying. Also, how am I supposed to "move and walk" for the c-section healing but "put your feet up" for the swelling!?!
