Cramping: Where is this cramping feeling? Leg or abdomen? Sitting in the same position for a long time can lead to blood clots in your leg. Do you have any leg swelling? If you have abdominal cramping it may be due to constipation associated with pain meds.

It is always best to follow up with the surgeon who performed your surgery. Give them a call and let them know what you're experiencing.
