TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT- LEG IS LONGER THAN BEFORE

boneonbone posted:
I am wondering if any other TKR recipients have experienced the weird feeling that they seem taller and off kilter on the leg that had the TKR? I feel a bit taller on that side, quite strange. Surgeon says that it's normal because of previous lost height from extreme knee damage and bone on bone osteoarthritis. I can't be the only one imagining or sensing this. ???

It's actually pretty common to have one leg longer than the other after a TKR. Have the physical therapist measure it for you. Mine gave me a lift for my shoe to even myself out.
