Foot neuropathy after total knee replacement

Thanks for your reply and referral to an interesting article. My surgeon does not believe that I have had nerve damage because I have good motor function. However, she does think that nerve compression from swelling is probably causing this. And that’s why she thinks this will “probably” improve with time. But there is always the qualifier that it may never get better.

I realize that your post is now almost three years old but I hope you see it. Wondering if the sensory problems you had following your TKR resolved over time. Your situation mirrors my own although mine is very recent. I am only seven weeks post op. I'm hoping that this is a time limited event but, as you noted, there seem to be no guarantees. Thanks in advance.
