Foot neuropathy after total knee replacement

I had my second knee replacement in 2018, two attempts at nerve block. After op I had severe loss of feeling on foot, I was assured this would improve, sadly not. Two years later I have no sensation in the foot and now front of leg, I wear compression stockings, warm in summer but effective, I also wear secure leather footwear, comfortable but definitely manna shoes, I also use a foot massage machine to increase blood flow. Hope it stays as is and not get worse, I can live with the pain and numbness.

Hello @caro66, Welcome to Connect. I'm thinking that all of us with neuropathy feel the same as you, please don't let this get any worse while hoping to find something that provides a little relief. I also wear compression socks every day but it's not for neuropathy, it's to keep the swelling in my legs down that is caused from my lymphedema. I have made some lifestyle changes – eating healthier and more exercise which has helped with the neuropathy and keeps me moving. The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy has some information you might find helpful here — https://www.foundationforpn.org/living-well/

Have you tried making any lifestyle changes?
