    I am not sure what kind of procedure you had done but my ankles swell up nearly every day. I have brought this to the attention of my rheumy and he doesn't seem to concerned with it.

    I did have a doppler scan done on my right leg which swells the most and it came back okay. In fact, I have had two done through the years and both were okay. They look for blockages when they do this or blood clots.

    I sometimes wear (mostly in the winter) the thick white stockings you wear after surgery. This does help keep the swelling down but I can't stand them in the hot weather.

    Hope your blood work comes out okay.
