Swollen feet AFTER a c-section...

Is this normal? My feet are more swollen now than when I was pregnant. Elevating hasn't helped...

  • Have you been sitting or laying more than usual since you got home from hosptial? If the swelling has gotten worse, meaning....it never really went away and has continued to become more of an issue then I would call your OB. General swelling around the ankles is common and okay, but if it is more than what you think should be normal then call.
