Time to see MD: 59 year old woman s/p TKA 8 weeks ago, community ambulatory with increasing lower extremity pain over the past 4 weeks in the setting of venous insufficiency/compression socks. I encourage you to go in for an appointment right away. Wearing compression socks will decrease your chances of getting a DVT, your pain is bilateral and you probably have osteoarthritis however it is safest to rule out DVT
