Feet/ankles swollen after hip surgery
About a month ago I had one hip joint replacement.  Legs, especially the operated one, got quite swollen but they returned to normal after a week or so.  

However, since a few days ago my feet and ankles got significantly swollen!  I try to exercise them and sleep with my legs quite elevated and they look and feel better in the morning, but throughout the day they again swell quite a bit.

Having spent 4 weeks between the hospital and the rehab, all my vital signs were checked frequently and were/are normal, and my health has always been very good (at 83 years old) and never had any illness.    :)

I try to drink plenty of water and wonder if this might be the culprit???

I won't see the surgeon for another week.  Will appreciate enormously an opinion.
