Hi @mel61913 – First, welcome to Connect. I'm so glad you posted. It must be terribly scary to have that loss of feeling in your foot. I had a TKR on 1/29 of this year. I have some numbness around the knee, but nothing like what you are experiencing. At this point, I'm sure you have gone back for at least one follow up visit. What does your doctor say regarding the loss of sensation? Without feeling in your foot, can you bear weight on it? I'm really feeling for you and hoping maybe others in the group may have more insight than I do.

My TKR was Feb 12, 2019 & I too woke up to a numb & tingly foot. Found out thru an ABI the surgeon pinched off my popliteal artery, which I had to have a vascular surgeon open. I am find out now that I have nerve damage fro the TKR surgery. TKR surgeon told me I could of lost my leg and why did I wait 60 to get it fixed. He was the one who told me it was normal and give it a year or two. I wish you all the best and hope you find answers.
