Looking for advice...

I haven't been on this board for awhile. I was told by my OS back in February that I need a total replacement of my left knee. Because I fell at work, I have re-scheduled the surgery three times. I am hoping that my hearing this Tuesday, August 7th, will clear me once and for all for an August 27th knee replacement. Within the past couple weeks, I am noticing numbness and tingling in my left foot, ankle and calf areas. I was told a few years ago that my knee is becoming bowed inward. The OS a few years ago told me that there is nerve that can become a problem as the knee presses on it. I am wondering if that is what is causing this numbness and if anyone here has ever experienced anything like this. In addition, I am unsure if I should alert my surgeon that this is happening.....Any advice would really be appreciated as I am not sure what to do... Thanks so much. Karen
