Try sleeping with your affected leg propped with pillows so that your foot is elevated above your heart. Do not exceed your 90 degree precaution however so be sure your back is flat. I had swelling after both my THR's after returning home.I see improvement after one night of sleeping in this manner although it's a bit uncomfortable. Good luck to you and God bless.
