Hi . I had tkr surgery 6wk ago now . I am having problems with pain in ankle and foot keeping me awake at night and on resting. Does any one else have this problem. I had my 6 week check up and knee is doing well. But they have said as the knee was not central and is now after surgery it has put my ankle out of alignment and have to have physio to help ankle in it's new position. Has anyone else had this problem.

    Hi Sue

    Yes I did for weeks, my ankle was really swollen and really hurt all down the right hand side.  I iced it and kept it moving and it eventually just wore off. I found ipobrufen helped. 

    Good luck

    I am 5 weeks today and my problem is calf muscle and IT band.I was also told the problem is when they take your leg off then put back on it is not in same position.So the muscles may be shorter or longer which causes pain.And your right sleeping is the absolute worse.It will get better with time and we must do our exercises and walk

    Hi Sue I’m 9 weeks today and have had really bad ankle pain especially after I walk and it sort of just collapses.The ankle pain and shin pain are actually worse than my knee.I really didn’t expect the ankle pain.I don’t have an answer but I’m sure some one on this great forum can help us.Good luck with your recovery.

    My feet and ankles hurt before my surgery. But even now I'm having some pains there again. Today my heel felt bruised. My left ankle bone is filled with fluid. My big problem is my pelvis and lower back. I've been bow legged my entire life until my surgery 8 weeks ago. So now everything is shifting into a new normal and I expect pain until I can get used to the new structure and strengthen the muscles that support those areas. See a chiropractor.
