Muscular and joint pain and soreness
After the operation, you may have muscle and joint pains around the shoulder (more often left than right) and sometimes the arm or the neck. These are due partly to lack of movement immediately after the operation. They are also partly caused by muscles and ligaments which were stretched during the operation while you were placed in a particular position for easy breathing under anesthetic.
Leg soreness and swelling
During the first few weeks, you may feel some leg soreness from the incision along the leg through which the veins have been removed. There may also be some swelling of the leg and weeping of fluid from the lower or upper ends of the scar. You can reduce these symptoms by keeping your leg elevated and by using an elastic support stocking.
Palpitations may occur at any time after surgery. Sometimes these are rapid, forceful and irregular heart beats due to what is called atrial fibrillation (or flutter). Here the heart’s rhythm changes so that it beats rapidly and irregularly and causes significant discomfort. It may make you feel anxious and sometimes medication is given to stop it. However, there is no need to worry. It is a common and innocent complication of the operation and usually settles down within hours or days.
Sweating and fever
Sweating, particularly at night, is common in people who have some fever after the operation. Fever occurs because blood and other tissue products are being dissolved.
This may be more marked if there is associated infection in the chest or leg. Infection in the chest may be in the lung, particularly amongst previous smokers who are prone to bronchitis, or in the chest wound or around the heart. Infection may also occasionally occur in the urinary system.
