Re: feet numb

I didn't have pain or numbness outside the knee area. I would see if the OS thought ice and elevation might help. Ask your PTwhat he thinks and tell your OS what the PT says.
L.Knee: Arthroscopy: '98, '04, '06; ACLrecon: '02; TKA:'06
R.Knee: Arthroscopy: '06; TKA indicated
R Hip: Arthroscopy '08;

Gymnastics is fun at 18 but not at 40.

Re: feet numb

OS aware of it. Have been presecribed medication that "heals nerve issues"> There has been some improvement, but feet become uncomfortable after sitting in a chair with feet down for half an hour or so. Left message with OS two days ago. No reply. Feet are very cold, so I use heat and elevtion which helps, but does not cure. PT says keep trying with OS. Very discouraging. This happened immediately after surgery and I endedup staying inthe hospital/rehab 13 days because I could not stand for 3 days. My impression is that physician keeps hoping it will resolve itself...but when?

Thank you for your concern and reply!!!
