Swelling 7 months after TKR

Posted , 6 users are following.

I had a tkr this past June. All was well until a couple weeks ago. There is some swelling going on and some numbness going down to my foot. I only notice the foolate in the day and evening. I'm wondering if this in normal or should I see my Dr before my scheduled June appointment? Thanks

    Hi there,

    Yes I would at the very least speak to your doctor, if for no other reason than to reassure you. Don't waste time get onto the doc.

    All the best

    Same with me.  I had surgery in July.

    i always worry about it, but then told it's still healing, to b paitent could take 12 months 😥😥 Had fuller TKR and they also straightened my leg so I'm hopping gets better.

    When I had TKR nearly 5 years ago they said it would be about a year before I really.

    By all means see your Dr before your appoinment in June if that makes you feel better about it but I certainly would not worry about it. Hope it settles down.

    Take care and keep in touch.
