    I had tarsal tunnel surgery a week and a half ago and ever since my foot has been acting a little strange. Whenever my foot is not elevated and it's hanging down or I'm walking (on crutches) it turns purple and feels very stiff.

    Once I prop it back up on the pillow it goes right back to normal. At first I figured it would reasonable because there was so much swelling due to the surgery, but now that some of the swelling has gone down it seems odd that it keeps happening.

    Should I be concerned about this or is it just a normal part of the healing process? I do have a call into my doc but won't hear back until Monday.
