Hi there,

With any post op there is the recovery stage, the question is are you sticking to the recovery plan as in not putting unnecessary pressure on it? Also your age will also play a role in your recovery. If redness and sensitivity to the lower leg is being experienced it could be a sign of an infection developing or poor circulation to DVT...Deep Vein Thrombosis. Either way my advice to you is to consult with your octor as soon as possible as DVT can kill you.

When you come on the top, you're now for you to lunge right down to the Other side. Come down until your leg knee is bent 90 degrees then break the rules back more. Again, you're NOT popping up to a total standing position - just straightening your hips and legs. This not only spares your knees, permits you to keep tension throughout the Muscle Building Review better AND use heavier prevention!]

My lower leg was run over by a car, told no broken bones ,4 days later having extreme pain, burning, and blisters around ankle, with redness and hot touch, numb toes , now pain back of my knee.

The compression of the muscle has caused "compartment syndrome" In other words the swelling is causing damage and you need to seek medical attention right now if you want to save that leg.

Please visit with your doctor. You may have a dangerous blood clot, and if it's not properly treated, it could give you a stroke. It may even kill you.

If your legs are swollen below your knees and are oozing a clear fluid that dries to a light yellowish color, you have what is called Lower Extremity Edema. This can be secondary to heart problems and Diabetes or both. In either case it is important to see your doctor as soon as possible.

What would be the most beneficial abdominal workout for the lower abs?

The only thing I'd like to add to Elaine's answer, Shayna, is something you didn't ask directly but I think your question may imply. You ask for exercises for your abdominals and I suspect that you think doing them will take weight off of that area of your body. If you are indeed under the impression that that will happen, I've got bad news for you: exercising a particular muscle group in the belief that you will eliminate fat from that area is a common misconception that many people have. I'm afraid it's false. What will happen is you will improve the strength of your abdominal muscles and increase their firmness, but they will exist under the layer of fat you wish to lose. The only way you can lose body fat is to burn more calories than your body takes in as food. You can do this via diet or exercise or, what is best and fastest, a combination of both. There are many misconceptions held by bodybuilders and exercise gurus that are generally accepted as true and are not even questioned. It's unfortunate. I'm sure that if you show this response to many of these people they will tell you that I am wrong. All you need do is get a good text on exercise physiology to read the truth of what I'm telling you. In any case, I wish you all the best and I hope you achieve your ideal and end up gorgeous! Here you get more information about abdominal workout.

FixYa does not have the expertise to answer medical questions.
