I had a open heart surgery four months back. It was done by taking a vein from my left leg. It is cured but there is still swelling on the left leg and left foot. Please Advise the cure ?

1. Due to the vein harvest blood flow is interupted in the normal flow pattern - so swelling occurs. 2. It will slowly settle down within 12 months.
