Concerned Mom: Hyperactive sympathetic nervous system réponses are not unusual post operative. This is more common when a tourniquet has been used. Be sure that she is walking to prevent blood clots. Hot tea and mom's warm chicken soup would help. Dad would suggest a shot of something that would cause peripheral vascular dilatation. Keep her active and it would not hurt to call the surgeon's office.

In all likelihood, the circulation is ok. The "pins" definitely tell me nerves. It can take some time for this to subside. Swelling of the extremity could also cause these symptoms.See 1 more doctor answer

Dvt 4 days after knee surgery. On Coumadin (warfarin) and lenovox. Should I stay off my feet or move around more?
