14 months post HTO - scar area hot and swollen?
« on: August 19, 2011, 10:27:21 PM »
I had an HTO 14 months ago and a further debridement tidy up arthroscopy 3 months ago.

My osteotomy scar has suddenly started to get hot and is a bit swollen and sore to touch.  It has not been like this for over 6 months and I'm not sure why it has suddenly started to hurt.  I have recently started very light jogging, but would that cause this reaction after over a year?

Has anyone had any similar reactions?
