Should I have charlie horses after foot surg



I am a 43 yr. old male, on 7-9-07 I had a bunyon removed w/pins put in the toe, 4 to be exact. My foot has not been a problem, the worst thing seems to be the cramps & charlie horse`s that gave been coming with it. I went back to work early (last week) and I am Ok with it . I am a delivery driver( I only drive) but my leg is swollen & charlie horse`s are bad to wake up to. Is there anything to do for relief???????????????


Considering your recent foot surgery, it would be advisable to consult your doctor about your swelling and cramps.
