Difficulties With Shoe Lifts After a TKR

HI everyone..Recently, I was asked why my shoe lift keeps changing. I don’t know why. The doctors do not know why.

Here’s the story:
For 30 years it was 1.25” due to a fractured femur I experienced after a car accident. Then, I had my tkr. As I wrote about in previous posts, I needed to retrain my hamstrings and learn to walk using a “normal” gait. It seems to have been all in vain.

I didn’t wear a shoe lift for the first year after my tkr since I didn’t think I needed it. I thought the surgery realigned my leg (I was bowlegged prior due to being bone on bone). I could walk like a regular person, finally. So, I bought and wore “normal” shoes. Then, my hips and body seemed misaligned. I went to the doctor to find out if I indeed did need a shoe lift. No measurements were taken, just blocks put underneath my tkr leg. I needed a 3/4” shoe lift.

I wore the 3/4” lift for a year and started feeling out of balance with joint pain and all that fun stuff caused by poor spinal alignment. I needed more shoe lift. Some days it seemed I needed more than other days. Strange. So, I went back to the doctor. More blocks were put underneath my tkr leg.

This time I needed 1-3/8” lift. So, it really is only 1/8” more than what it was prior to my tkr. Interesting.

Since having that shoe lift, it’s been about one month, my pain and imbalance has disappeared. Fantastic!

So, when I am asked why my shoe lift keeps changing…there is no simple answer. I still don’t know why. I’m just glad to be out of pain and walk comfortably.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!
