I will be having a Rt. TKR in a few weeks, they told me to get a new pair of shoes for you will walk different after having surgery done. OK, fine BUT no one would tell me if I should get a wider or bigger shoe because of swelling? Can anyone give me some pointers, PLEASE!
Thank you in advance.

Who told you that? You might limp for a while but eventually you'll walk the same as you always walk. And any swelling you have is going to go away.
