I woke up this morning fine and was able to do my normal get up and walk around routine, I'm 4 days out so far so I took a shower and afterwards I fell asleep which is pretty normal to me but when I woke up and tried to walk on my right leg the back of my knee keeps giving me pain and also my leg keeps giving out. I'm not seeing any swelling or bruising but I've had to resort to using a crutch to walk around now. Going to have to go to the hospital pretty soon. Has anyone else experienced this?

No I haven't experienced what you are going through.

Have you been wearing the compression socks the hospital provided? if you don't have any would be worth buying some and wearing for a while once this issue has been resolved .

I lost a lot of muscle in my legs very quickly after surgery and they were weak. My legs were crampy from not moving around. It took a few weeks to get back to normal. You can work out in a chair if you need to. You should contact your doctor for real medical advice.

Call your surgeon and let them know; they'll tell you if it's something that can be expected or if you should go to the hospital.

I ended up with a blood clot (very small, resolved on its own) in my arm, but I had been in and out of the hospital for my gallbladder.

If you don't feel any swelling or any pain when you press down on the leg, it may not be a blood clot, but just muscle weakness. I lost a lot of strength, even though I was walking pretty much every day.
