Following recent right knee replacement, I find that my right leg is at least a full inch longer than my left. Is this normal? What remedies are available?

I just added 1/2" to my lift so now I use a 3/4" lift.....may get the shoemaker to make me an 1" lift to see the diff....

Hi,

I was 5'4" before having both knees replaced. Post op, I am now 5'6." Thirty three years of arthritis will do that to you! Now my knees are straight, just as God intended them to be.
