I had an Osteotomy and TKR on 9.1.18 doing really well. Had to return to work very early as lone financial supporter of family so returned at 4 was post op on phased return for 2 weeks now full time. Not driving yet mainly due to adverse weather.
125 bend -15 straight crutches only in icy conditions or 1 when really tired. Missed Physio this week as was snowed in and cut off. Been doing some exercices but honestly this week not half as much as I should have. Do not get as much rest as perhaps I should.
Today I have pain and burning approx 2 inches above top of scar and 2 inches below it down my shin. Stabbing and burning. Not had this before. I have elevated. Ankle and foot a little swollen but not terribly. I’ve had specialist prothesis with the knee 2 sides then a long stem at top and bottom. Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this and also discolouration of the scar. It’s very soft as I use E45 cream 4 or 5 times a day but blue black colours come and go in places/ anyone had this also please.
I’ve cut down on meds and experienced the night sweats but so tired again.
Advise welcomed please.
