after having a total knee replacement 9 days ago, i developed a severe pain and tenderness( can't stand to hardly touch the skin it hurts so bad) in my calf. after contacting the doctor, i had a dvt doppler done and it came back negative for clots. can someone give me any idea as to what's going on with my calf. i can't even walk it hurts so bad.
Do not worry pain at the operation site will remain for 12 weeks. You take anti inflammatory drugs and do rigorous Physiotherapy. With severe pain give some rest but continue your therapy from the next day.
Remain motivated as Physiotherapy is the best hope to get back to road of recovery as soon as possible. Take care and avoid infections!
