I'll get straight to the point, "Itching" 2 weeks post op .
Anyone else scratching like crazy and driving their partner mad
It can start any time of day or night striking any area from the ankle to mid thigh.
I try hard to ignore it but eventually have to slap on E45 which thankfully does calm things down.
Also 2 weeks post op my shin in particular and to some extent my calf became tender to the touch.
I've had this tightening of the lower leg for 7 days now and it does not appear to be improving, just wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience.
Surgery was recommended 5 years before I finally had it done and apparently in that period my leg had taken up a slightly bent position. (something I hadn't noticed)
The surgeon said he would sort this out by stretching it at the same time he did my knee.
Wow, I think he must have used the "Rack" the back of my leg was black and blue and so swollen, it gave me some real stick.
I also noticed some bruising round the ankle and top of my thigh, probably anchor points before stretching, who knows.
I wonder if any surgeons read the feed back on this forum and are tempted to explain why so many different symptoms occur post op.
