Why is my foot so swollen after knee surgery

answered:

DVT

Extremity-joint-knee
Your foot is probably swollen from the trauma of knee surgery, but it can be swollen from a blood clot in your leg, which can be extremely dangerous. Deep venous thrombus can have formed in one of the deep veins in your leg causing the swelling in your foot.Knee surgery puts you at a very high risk for this. It can be very dangerous as this can progress to a pulmonary embolism.So get checked out.
