TKR 13 weeks

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi,

I’m 13 weeks post op and I have noticed my leg is not straight so I don’t know what it is.

My upper leg seems straight and then the lower part seems to bend out.

Will this right itself ?? I see my doctor this Tuesday I also will be having exrays .

I’m afraid of needing a manipulation !!!

Any thoughts would be great

    Hi Lisa is this the first time your seeing doctor? I would wAit and speak to them. My leg went as you described following multi fractures but was straightened during TKR. Please let me know how you get on as it’s one of my worries.

    It may be that it has been corrected and looks odd to you because you are not used to it. That is most likely I would have thought.
