Unsafe sex: While it's unlikely you contracted HIV after this episode of unsafe sex, you can not rely on third hand information of sexual history. The only history you can rely on is your own. To protect against HIV infection, practice safe sex every time unless you are in a mutually monogamous relationship in which both partners have tested negative for HIV over six months or longer.

Yes and No: Early in the recovery it is not unusual to have swelling from the knee down into the ankle and foot. With healing proper circulation is reestablished and usually the swelling returns to a more normal state. Ice, elevation, and compression and education may help but if the swelling persist too long more aggressive treatment may be needed. See, your surgeon.
