Hello everyone I had a partical knee replacement 11weeks ago after years of being in pain which became worse and worse as the years went by . Probably the last couple of years my op I started walking funny turning my foot on the side which sort of helped with the pain of walking. Since the op my knee has healed nicely don't get to much pain from it I do get very tired after exercise and walking. The problem that I now Have is serve pain in my foot and ankle swollen alot of the time and when I have been out walking or standing for awhile became like a very heavy feeling. I did mention it to consultant at my 6 week check up he said that because of the way I walked and now my knee has been straighten this is why I have the problem. I go to a phisyo group once a week and the phisyo there has been very helpful and advised me to refer myself back to phisyo and hopefully will be referred to a podiatrist. I have lost alot of my confidence since my op and feel so unsteady when I'm out especially if on my own. Also Feel that friends and family think I should be doing alot better than I am have been feeling quite lost and alone. Has anyone else had a problem like this?
