Post by: troony on August 07, 2007, 10:09:06 AM

Hi troony ~ Congratulations on a successful TKR. I'm only guessing here but just recently when I did more damage to the lateral side of my knee I found I was altering the way I walked & eventually ended up with a very sore outer calf & foot. Could the fit of your new knee have for some reason put more stress on the lateral side of your leg?? Wishing you well...Ellie
