Foot neuropathy after total knee replacement

Hi

Has your foot pain settled down now? I am 10 weeks post op TKR and I have had exactly the same issue and continue to do so. I am also taking Gabapentin and dosage has also been an issue. I'm hoping once all the swelling has subsided I will be ok. I certainly never expected this to be an issue post op!

I am 11 months post op and still have numbness on the bottom of my foot. My TKR surgeon kept telling me a numb foot was normal and give it a year or 2. My primary said that's not normal and scheduled an ABI test that showed low pressure in that leg. My knee surgeon pinched my Popliteal Artery during my TKR. I had surgery to open that artery. My foot got a little better, but still numb on the bottom. I am scheduled for an EMG test to see if there is nerve damage which could maybe heal or if it is tissue and cell damage from not having blood flow to my foot. Good luck & wish you the best.
