Foot problems after TKR
Hey guys, I am new here and have had some of my concerns answered just by reading your questions and peoples replies. I see my PT tomorrow and will be asking him, but thought I would ask this of others who have had TKR. I am 2 1/2 weeks out. The next day after surgery I pulled my calf muscle. It has slowed me down with my straightening of my leg. But I am still progressing. But my question is. I have been walking basically straight leg and flat footed on my left leg for at least 20 years. Now I am trying to relearn how to walk heel-toe. My ankle is swollen, just a little and across the top of the foot it almost feels like I sprained it. Plus, when I hang it down it almost feels numb. I think this might be because I am now using my foot in a whole new way. Walking heel to toe and bending the foot. Any one else have any foot problems on the leg they had surgery, and did it turn out to be anything to worry about. Thanks everyone.
