Could be serious... When a person with recent surgery starts gets calf pain, swollen toes, shortness of breath, and dizziness, the general recommendation is to call 911 and go to the E.R. by ambulance. The E.R. doctor will evaluate her to see if she has a blood clot in her leg veins, because such a blood clot can travel to her lungs and block blood flow to her lungs, causing shortness of breath and sometimes death.
