Essential information after calf nerve branch block surgery
Precautions after surgery
A feeling of tightness in the calf muscles may occur for about 1 to 2 weeks. Depending on individual differences, swelling and stiffness may last 1 to 3 weeks. When discomfort is severe, wearing 3 to 5 cm heels for a short time may temporarily relieve symptoms. However, this does not mean that a 3-5 cm heel is always best. Sneakers or flat shoes are recommended for everyday use, but if you experience temporary discomfort, you can wear heels for a short time. Showering is possible from the day after surgery. A calf care program will begin one week after surgery. (6 high frequencies)
