If you suffered with swollen feet after birth how long did it last? Thanks :-)

I had swollen feet for what felt like months! Think it was just a couple of weeks though. Keeping them elevated and H rubbing them helped a lot!

I had swollen ankles/feet only for about a week afterwards, they seemed to disappear pretty quickly which I'm glad about as they looked horrible!

A week or so. It's the fluid coming out of your system, mine really hurt.

Thanks ladies. The midwife had said a few days or a week so I was a bit concerned that they're still painful and swollen now (11days). I got some footwear on yesterday for the first time in about 6 weeks (so they must be smaller than they were) but that hurt too. I had them pretty bad during pregnancy so I'll just need to be a bit more patient and persevere with elevating them. Thanks :-)

About 2 weeks until I noticed they'd gone down significantly, and could put shoes on from before his birth!

I would say a couple of weeks for them to return to normal. The mw kept checking them but they were happy they were getting better even though it seemed to take forever.

It's been almost 4 weeks and they are still swollen and still hurt! I have one pair of work shoes I can wedge my trotters in to, and I wear flip flops the rest of the time (thank gawd it's not January). Sick of them! :)
