Shoe Lift Fitting & A TKR

Something interesting happened while at the doctor’s office recently that I thought was worthy of sharing.

My tkr leg is shorter than the other, a topic I have written about in previous posts. Well, while being measured for a new shoe lift, I was continually asked “how does it feel?” And..that’s where the strangeness begins.

How is one supposed to know how “it feels” if there is no joint to feel with? I was totally perplexed. Before my tkr, it was easy to know how my knee felt since I still had a knee. It may not have been operating as “normal”, but I still had a joint that told me how everything was.

When I was asked “how does it feel?” I didn’t answer for a while. I couldn’t figure it out. It was very confusing. Finally, I felt my hip bones to see how they were aligned. And, the doctor did the same. The entire issue is still perplexing to me.

So, anyways…the correct shoe lift size was determined when my hip joints were aligned. And, there was another measurement done that I found interesting. While sitting down with my legs over the edge of the bench, it was obvious that my femurs were different lengths. One piece of wood was placed across my “normal” knee toward my tkr knee. Then, other pieces of wood (that were used to measure my leg length discrepancy) were placed between the original piece. Then, it was determined that was the proper lift amount. As it turned out, while standing, that same amount was placed underneath my tkr foot. And, it balanced my hip joints.

Still, I wonder why a tape measure couldn’t have been used to measure my legs and compare the two lengths. Seems that would solve the problem of “how does it feel?” There would be no subjectivity involved.

Thought I’d share this in case anyone else is going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share….
