After C-sec swollen feet. How long?
Mon, 03-15-2004 - 10:10pm
I had my C-sec last Thursday and the whole pregnancy I had no swelling. Well now my feet are extreemly swollen and puffy. The doctors just say oh dont worry it will go away but how long does it last? Any advise on how to make it go away faster or at least go down a bit?

my feet were super swollen for 5 days after C-section,but that was also due to the steroids i was taking for Bell's Palsy.but i talked to my Dr. and a nurse too at the hospital they said swelling is normal for 7-8 days with c-section.HTH
