Husband had laminectomy of L3,4, and 5 just 10 days ago. Had to stay in hospital 8 days due to dura tear which
sealed itself after 48 hours flat on back. Just before coming home his right foot began to swell with some pain and
discomfort. He was given scans of both legs from groin to toes with negative results for blood clots. We are due to
see his family doctor and surgeon again in 3 days. What can we do in the meantime? Is this dangerous? Ice? Exercise
by walking or not?
