In brief: Check with your surg

You need to discuss these concerns with your surgeon.
Two things that come to mind when you mention a cold foot upon standing is poor circulation to the foot or secondly, possible nerve damage which is not uncommon with surgery. You didn't mention how long ago you had surgery, but often it can take up to a year for the nerve to regenerate following surgery.
