I wear compression stockings for previous DVT right leg, today when I put them on they were very tight on right calve, I have been riding a satationary bike for about 2hrs a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, also using a stepper. Today I went and walked for 30 min. on treadmill, any suggestions on exercise that will reduce large calves? Jackie

It does sound like you are gaining muscle. That is a lot of exercise and the stepper is really good for your legs. I would check and see if it is edemia, but it just sounds like you are getting healthy! Go girl.

I think it is the great exercise you are doing. It is not fat, you have built muscle. Or you have developed edema in your legs. You should ask your doctor about what he thinks. we all can only give our opinions. those are mine.
