Hi guys! I’m 48 hours post-op (ACL and meniscus repair)

Hi guys! I’m 48 hours post-op (ACL and meniscus repair) and doing great! Pain is manageable and I was able to shower this morning. Bandages came off this morning and the compression stocking came off my good leg. Over all I’m feeling good. However, is it normal for my GOOD leg to be swollen? My surgery leg looks and feels great, my good leg is so puffy and full of edema.

Could be from overcompensating but swelling in the opposite leg could also be a blood clot so if you start getting pain and hotness go to ER. Hopefully your surgeon gave you some info on complications!

I would wear the compression stockings if you are unable to get up much and move around. They will help with blood flow as you are laying down or sitting. Do some ankle pumps to get the blood flowing in both legs. I also iced both legs to get swelling down.
