Any updates on your swelling issues? I also had compartment syndrome and am about a month away from being able to weight bear. My biggest problem is the swelling that starts as soon as an hour after getting out of bed to go to work. Elevating during the day doesn’t help, either, because my torso is still above the foot and knee while at work. Many hours of being elevated in bed is all that makes it better.Once the swelling starts, my knee and ankle are so tight that I can’t effectively do any of my physical therapy. My OS does not want to use compression socks because of the skin grafts. Please tell me things get better.
