 Elevate your foot above your heart!
JanGMe (---.dip.t-dialin.net)   12:23am Mar 19 2004

It is hard to find a good position, but your foot need to be above your heart to do the best job with keeping down swelling.

The wheelchair is a good idea, but make sure you get one that lets your leg be elevated. The elevation that the wheelchair provides is not above your heart level, so you will need a pillow once you get where you are going. Or stake out the next desk over and throw your leg over it.

Elevate, elevate, elevate.

Good luck.
