Walking, Bruised Feet & A TKR

Something strange occurred THREE weeks ago after my taking a walk. I have walked for up to four miles since my tkr without any concerns. However, this time I changed my shoes and head out for the trail. These shoes were sold as “walking shoes”. Here’s the lowdown:

Near the end of my walk, I started getting pains in my total knee replacement side foot. I could feel my shoes pinching my big toe and causing a disruption of my steady gait. However, I did not give it much more thought. I just thought that it was a good walk, but I may have overdone it. I was simply planning on coming home, taking a shower, and becoming a couch potato while enjoying my beloved hockey. Oh…and ice.

Upon rising the next day, I was in for something I had not ever experienced before. My big toe was completely bruised. There was a bruised area on the top of my foot above my middle toe, also. Woah…I then realized I needed new shoes. Some “walking shoes”. 😕 I also figured that my bruising would be gone within the week since that is my average recuperation time from bruising. I handle bruises well, usually.

Here it is three weeks later and the bruises are still there. I do not like calling my doctor over something like a bruise, but after having a total knee replacement, I was not comfortable with the time period involved between my walk and bruising period (aka….NOW). Plus, one of my friends suggested that I call just to be safe.

I just got done calling my tkr doctor’s office and was told there was no answer unless pain was involved. Luckily, there is no pain involved. Just bruising. “That’s a good question,” I heard. Another area of concern, I was told, was if there was bruising anywhere else on my body. There is not.

So, I guess I will just wait for the bruising to run its course. It is crazy to have it around for this long. In the meantime, there has to be a good pair of walking shoes out there somewhere with my name on them. 🙂

I thought I would share this information with my readers in case anyone else is going through, or has gone through, the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

  • Hi. I had my left knee replaced on July 28th, 2009. It is now October 18th, 2009. The bruising mostly went away. But in the last week it started coming back in my thigh area and foot.

    Do you think this is normal?

    I think only one person should answer that question and that should be th Doctor. Don’t waste any more time and make that call soon. take care and let us know what he/she says.

    Hi Angel,
    Sharon’s correct. Your doctor can help you with that.
    We’re not here to give medical advice, just support each other and tell of our own experiences.
    I haven’t had that unexpected bruising you are discussing.

    Good luck! Keep us informed.
