Rest, ice & elevate!: Some swelling after surgery is normal. The amount and location may not be. The type of surgery is important, but post-op care is a very big factor. Simple ice and elevation with range of motion exercises when called for can prevent or reduce swelling. Sometimes rest alone with elevation of the feet to eye level for several days will do it. Joint surgery usually requires motion to heal properly.

Many possible causes: There are many potential causes for symmetric numbness in the hands and feet. Metabolic disorders like diabetes, neurological disorders, including spinal disorders and even masses compressing the spine can cause numbness. Sometimes circulatory problems can cause numbness in the hands and feet. If the numbness is chronic and unremitting it is best to get it checked out.

Cushioned shoes.: High arches can mean different things to different people. Feet that appear to have high arches sometimes appear different on x-rays. In general high arched feet require padding of some sort. They often do well with a low heeled shoe as well. Shoes should have a rigid heel counter. Inserts can often help too. If otc inserts don't help in a few weeks a good biomechanical work up may be warranted.
