Hard to say but probably fine. See your doctor to check it.

That is quite normal. You have a sudden increase of blood flow to the skin when hose are removed. Do not be concerned.

You should contact your physician and have him/her evaluate it.

This is a difficult question to answer. It is better for the foot to be pinker rather than paler than the other foot. This could be due to early lymphatic or venous stasis changes or to nothing abnormal. I would simply watch this at this time. I do not think that this is anything bad.
