In response to Shary. I too have RSD in my left leg. I am in need of a complete knee replacement but the doctors refused to do it stating that the RSD would only get worse. I had a high tibia osteotomy done and the effects of having to cut the bone brought the RSD from my foot to my leg. So I was never able to enjoy the benefits of the surgery because of the RSD pain. Sugery can be done provided they do a block first. I am not willing to chance it at this time. Sylvia
