I've had reconstructive knee surgery but lately the interior portion of my knee into my calf has been hurting. It hurts to touch, bend, straiten, etc?
I had knee surgery about a year ago and since then I have had to wear a knee brace every day my knee hurts all the time and my calf stays swollen up?
See details.: This is obviously not a normal result from what i assume to be arthroscopic surgery. You should not still need a brace and should not be in pain. Calf swelling can be secondary to phlebitis or the rupture of a popliteal cyst among other causes. Get a 2nd opinion. I would strongly recommend a new MRI if you have not recently had one done. ...Read more

I had arthoscopic knee surgery a month ago. My calf muscle is very tight and hurts when i walk. I now have 2 big bruises on the back of my leg.
It depends.: This depends how long after the surgery this is being done, and how well you've healed. Usually after knee surgery the knee is flexed and extended to get back range of motion. Then if ambulation is attempted, it is first done with crutches, so weight is gradually introduced. So it would be best to put little weight on it to start, then more until no crutches are needed, then try slowly to walk. ...Read more
