COLD FOOT AFTER ARTHROSCOPY
« on: April 26, 2015, 09:22:00 PM »
A week ago I had an arthroscopy on my left knee and I am now suffering from a very cold left foot,
is this normal and will it warm up in time or do I need to go back to the hospital and get it checked out ?

It doesn't sound normal, I've never had such after any of my three arthroscopies. Contact the surgeon / hospital in the morning, or ask the physio assuming you are seeing one. Are you walking normally or still with crutches?

I am still using crutches at the moment but doing exercises hopefully be down to one crutch soon then get rid of them completely.

Are you doing the usual post scope exercises like ankle pumps, quad sets, heel slides to get the ROM back and circulation moving? What was done in the surgery?

You should still seek medical advice tomorrow :)

Flexing the ankle, lifting the leg up and holding it, standing and bending the knee that type of thing, yes I certainly will tomorrow first thing.
