    hello Deb. I have issues with my foot as well.

    Post op I developed a neuroma on th ball of the operated leg so I feel like I am walking on a lump. My foot does not work the same as my other anymore and feels cold and less usable somehow. My surgeon brushed it off to e honest but I am wondering if there is nerve damage from part of the operation. I am in my second year post op and all is OK with the knee thank goodness.

    All the best.

    I have had swelling in my foot but given time it went away (yeah I know no real help ) Have you tried elevating your leg above your heart? I was given that advice from my therapist back when I had that issue it did go away. If this make sense if all else fails and it driving you nuts call the Dr. no matter what it is not normal maybe the Dr. can shed some light on it??

    Hello.. I had a partial knee replacement 12 weeks ago I have a problem with my foot very painful around ankle and across my instep when I walk and ankle swells alot consultant told me it's because my leg had bowed because of the way I walked before my surgery I waitedalot of years and was in alot of pain. So when they did replacement they straighten my leg and now my foot is not inline when I walk so am seeing a podiatrist and hope they can help with the problem.

      Probably not. When I asked Dr at my 6 month follow up end of last month, didn't seem to bother him he didn't look at it told me to see my primary care. I will be 7 months on the 30th and feel like I'm going backwards. I have night pain again and some day pain also. I have very low energy don't feel much like doing anything. Don't know if this is all normal or what. Now they tell me I will need right one done at some point. I am 72 and was fairly active before all this.

    Had RTKR over a year ago March 2017. I do have some existing lymphatic and leg issues and the surgery has made the op leg more swollen from just above the knee down. The surgery causes a lot of tissue trauma and can take a long time to repair, maybe up to two years. But some folk always have a tendency to have some swelling after TKR if they are more active than usual. With any luck, yours may resolve. My surgeon was not too concerned when I went for a check up as the x rays and everything looked good. See your doc if it bothers you, good luck.
