  • Did you have an IV put in? I had saline IV and anitbiotic for Strep B and my feet and ankles were totally swollen for about 2 weeks. It was about a month before they were back to normal. I tore pretty bad, so I wasn't very active the first 2 weeks. If you feel up to it, walking around is the best thing. Also, drink plenty of water to try and flush it out.

  • Mine were swollen like crazy, walk around!! and if you can get a foot rub it makes it feel alot better, but walking around got rid of it fast for me!

  • Yeah I have the strep B. I guess they put a IV in me. I know my feet wasnt swollen til like the 3 or 4day after I had her. I was only in hospital 2 days.
