See below: If your surgery was on your feet for an orthopedic condition then swelling is not unusual after only 2 weeks.

See your surgeon:: Not to sound an alarm, but a sudden increase in swelling 2 weeks after surgery needs to be assessed by the surgeon to prevent any complications from becoming a problem.
