Had a C-section and on Hydrocodone. Can this cause swelling in legs, feet and ankles ?

I just recently had a C-section and I am on Hydrocodone for pain along with iron supplements , prenatal vitamins , fish oil and vitamin d3 for breast feeding. I just came home yesterday from the hospital and started all of these medicines and vitamins. Can any of these be linked to swelling in my legs, feet, and ankles?

No, I do not think your symptoms are related to the drugs that you are on currently.

It is normal to have swelling in legs, feet and ankles during and after a delivery be it C-section or normal vaginal delivery.

Keep your foot end elevated. It will go away soon.

Take care.
