Cold foot after surg: It is not good. Go back to the orthopedic surgeon that did the knee. He/she was in there. That person knows what was seen and done. They will have the best knowledge about this.

Foot numb: Absolutely see your orthopedist . As stated he/she was in there doing the surgery and is the one to help you. Good luck.
