Re: SWOLLEN FEET after Claw Toe Surgery

I am sorry your doctor did not discuss this in depth with you. My office manager always complains I talk to the patients too much!
Anyway, swelling comes with any surgery and gravity is your enemy when you have foot surgery. I regret to advise you that flying will increase ytour swelling due to decreased cabin pressure, sitting in a cramped position cutting off the venous return. You might need to wear sandals and socks too if it is cold.
