Heat radiating in leg

I have had the sensation of heat radiating in my calf - what could be the cause of it.  I recently had my knee replaced 9 months ago.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Heat radiating in the calf especially after a knee surgery could be due to clots in the deep veins of the calf or deep vein thrombosis. A duplex ultrasound or angiogram is required for diagnosis. Please consult a vascular specialist. This may need further treatment with medication and maybe even surgery. Please get this evaluated fast. Take care!

Could be a DVT do not mess around with seeing a doctor about it. If it is a clot, you need help right away.
