See a physician soon: Hi, Any type of visual disturbance gives us cause for concern. Usually it is a sign of another problem such as hypertension, diabetes etc. Most recently, I had a patient with similar symptoms that had an ocular migraine. Consulting a physician (internist) would be wise also in addition to the information that you have gotten from your ophthalmologist.

Floater: It sounds like a floater but since you had a thorough exam by your ophthalmologist, there is nothing to worry about and this would be regarded as just a nuisance but nothing serious. However if more appear reexamination is advisable.

Thick nasal mucus: Thick nasal mucus can be related to sinusitis, but not necessarily. If you have chronic allergies or recurrent infections you should consult a doctor who can identify if there is an opportunity to improve nasal inflammation with sprays or treat infection with antibiotics. You may benefit from good nasal hygiene as well which involves using salt water rinses to clear mucus and allergens.

Yes and No: Early in the recovery it is not unusual to have swelling from the knee down into the ankle and foot. With healing proper circulation is reestablished and usually the swelling returns to a more normal state. Ice, elevation, and compression and education may help but if the swelling persist too long more aggressive treatment may be needed. See, your surgeon.
