    Hi Chris;

    My ankles used to go down every night by rising my lower legs. I also found compression stockings useful some days.

    Since my problems that started early November my ankles have been swollen all of the time.

    Love Terry

    Also try gentle massage, Christoff and move your knee, ankle & toe joints regularly, with help if necessary.

    If you've any concerns it may need checking out, ask your GP or nurse.

    Since Iíve become less mobile I now suffer from swollen lower legs, at first my physio therapist suspected DVT but thankfully that was ruled out my team says itís natural because Iím not using my legs very much, definitely follow Ellieís advice, get a professional to check you out, good luck
