Daughter 21 yrs old had torn meniscus knee surgery 2 days after surgery the foot&toes r ice cold on the same leg as feeling&movement worry &concerned?
Concerned Mom. Hyperactive sympathetic nervous system réponses are not unusual post operative. This is more common when a tourniquet has been used. Be sure that she is walking to prevent blood clots. Hot tea and mom's warm chicken soup would help. Dad would suggest a shot of something that would cause peripheral vascular dilatation. Keep her active and it would not hurt to call the surgeon's office.

Don't quite under- -stand the? . The blueness in the toes is common. It is a response to injury, and involves a circulatory response especially if the leg is dependent. The rest is not a question. When she starts to have less pain & is weight bearing this usually goes away. If not, call your surgeon.
Should the swelling be gone? I had arthroscopic knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus 2 weeks ago, and my knee is still swollen at times. Is that something I should be concerned about?
It. It will usually take a few weeks for the swelling to subside. If you have some arthritis as well as a meniscus tear it can take longer for the fluid in your knee to be absorbed. At two weeks post-operation I would not be too worried about having an occasionally swollen knee.
Not necessarily bad. Not uncommon to still have swelling; depends on activity level, etc. Recommend ice and elevation at end of day. If no improvement or gets worse followup with your doctor.
What to do if I had arthroscopic knee surgery for a torn meniscus 7 months ago and my knee feels the same it did before surg?
Follow up. I would not hesitate to discuss this directly with your surgeon and if you are not fully satisfied with the answer do not hesitate to seek a second opinion. There are many possible causes, your surgeon would be the most able to tell you the likely reason.
I have had surgery on my knee to repair a torn meniscus a week ago. Today my foot is swollen, is this normal?
Maybe see yousurgeon. Please check and let your surgeon examine you. It could be quite normal.
Normal. Swelling is common in leg and foot anfter lowerxtremity surgery. Elevation usually helps. Check with your surgeon just in case.
Yea can be. Lower extremity surguries can commonly cause foot or ankle swelling. Elevation of the foot above the hear level is recommended...
Yes. Common the first week or two for some. Ice your knee. Elevate your leg. This usually resolves over a 2-3 weeks.
Foot swelling. Lower extremity swelling following knee surgery is not uncommon especially if the knee procedure was involved, a tourniquet was used and the operating time was long. Nonetheless, your surgeon should have you carefully evaluated for deep vein thrombosis (blood clot).
Varies. Symptoms will likely stay the same or worsen over time. Arthritis can develop if there is a large tear causing friction within the joint. If conservative treatment has failed, surgery is likely the only thing that will help.
Can you tell me when does the average person go back to work after a torn meniscus arthroscopic knee surgery?
Depends. Depends on what the work is somewhere between 3 and 12 weeks should cover most everybody.
1-2 weeks. Depending on the type of work done, sedentary jobs can return to work within a few days, active jobs may require a bit more time and babying. Sutures (if used) usually come out in 7- 14 days so I recommend waiting till they come out. It there is no associated knee problem (arthritis) the biggest hinderamnce to returning to work iws hte muscle weakness associated with the tear.
