    Some people get pain in cooler months, while others don't. I have no idea why. I dont see why you can't wear some sort of support but that is best answered by your Dr. only bc some support mechanisms can alter the knee and the way you walk. I actually wear a legging or pair of pantyhose under my pants in winter for added warmth. A trick I learned long ago when riding in freezing weather.

    I had a right tkr beginning of April , and went back to work beginning of June. I wear an Ace bandage around my knee because most of my knee is still numb for support . I hope this helps you

    I had a hip replaced in New Jersey in 2009...spent one winter...that was enough for me. Now with 4 1/2 pounds of metal in hip, knee and back, I'm enjoying the warmth of Dallas/Fort Worth all the time. Ahhhhh..... For me, the combination of cold and metal was brutal.
