What kind of physical rehab would be good for a leg that has had bypass due to a popliteal aneurysm?

In brief: Use it!

In general, return to regular daily activity is the best rehab for fem-pop bypass patients.
Attention to range of motion is important to avoid contracture, and elevation to relieve leg swelling will be very helpful.
