How bout those leg exercisers? The ones you wrap around your legs down by the ankles and a pump inflates and deflates them? It is supposed to help keep the swelling down and help with circulation, but I have no idea if they are available outside of the hospital.

Hey, TG. I'm glad you went to the doctor and got fairly good news

If you can't find the automatic leg compression machine outside the hospital, your doctor may be able to arrange one for you. The compression stockings someone mentioned will help, too. I used those last year for a similar condition, although we figured out the cause of mine. You can get them at a pharmacy. Good luck.
