I’ve had SAPL on my right leg a few weeks ago. I have primary in my right leg that showed up 9 years ago. While the surgery went well, I realized that the post surgery recovery plan is not as defined as it should be.
I had custom compression made pre surgery based off the measurements of my good leg. But my operated thigh is smaller than the good one now so the legging is loose on the thigh. Also, the compression in the ankle is so tight that a vein in my ankle inflamed. Because of this I’ve had to wear off the shelf compression that fits better. Two weeks later my leg looks almost healed but the pain in my foot has worsened. I definitely was not expecting the intense foot pain (and I never had swelling in my foot pre surgery).
I’ve heard other people get bandaging after SAPL. I’m wondering if this would have helped.
What have others post op plans looked like?
