Wed, Oct 9 7:16am · Foot neuropathy after total knee replacement in Joint Replacements

I am five months postop and I still have the neuropathy in my foot and to feel that a nerve was compressed. My surgeon keeps telling me that it will come back and that it could take a year. It’s the worst feeling ever and I still have a lot of pain behind the knee and he refuses to give me any pain meds. I’m getting very frustrated at this point, I am very active person And sometimes I can’t do anything.

I agree with dkapustin, I think all these drs only care about their wrk. I had a knee replacement nine weeks ago my knee is doing well however I have had to go to Pain Management, go to the blood dr my primary care and have been in therapy for nine weeks. I developed high blood platelets, sciatica and my foot is totally numb at the bottom of the operative leg . And all these decks keep passing it to somebody else. The pain is excruciating they don’t want to give you meds for the pain and they to keep telling me that it takes a while. My sister had two replacements done and her knees are amazing and no pain’t or issues. I just don’t know what to do anymore going for shots tomorrow for sciatica and if this doesn’t work I’m out of options

Hi JK Thanks for the info, I’m going for my shots and the 30th I will let you know how they work. If not I have a nephew in Boston who is a podiatrist however his dad was an orthopedic, if that doctor works for you please let me know

Lori, now that you know what it is what are you doing for it? I just need to know which way to go with this. My foot was totally numb right after surgery which was May 21st, two weeks later I started pain And what everybody now was telling me my sciatica, however I have the foot neuropathy before the sciatica ever started acting up right now I feel I’m in limbo

I hear foot neuropathy also, The numbness tingling in my foot came right after surgery. However then about two weeks later I got sciatica, which is totally worse than the knee pain. I am in physical therapy for it and I am also going to pain Management for Cortizone shots in the sciatica. Everyone I talk to including my doctor blames it on something else so now I don’t know what’s going to happen I just hope I can get rid of the neuropathy and the sciatica. Very frustrated

I’m pretty sure the shots I’m getting i’m pretty sure the shots I’m getting a Cortizone also, are Cortizone also, I never had this sciatica till after my surgery. I also have the numbness and tingling in my foot of the operative knee. The tingling in numbness in the foot came first right after surgery and then my sciatica started about two weeks later so I don’t know what’s going on
