I’m not a doctor and it sounds like something a doctor should see. I would want to rule out blood clots or diabetic neuropathy. Have you been moving about every hour while awake? I would see your doctor.

I have never heard of that one. I agree it can’t hurt to put a call into your team.

Hi @Countrygirl2000 - because I have a clotting disorder, I've had more blood clots than I can count at this point. Pain behind the knee that is persistent is often the first sign that I have a clot in the popliteal vein. Of course, it could also be a million other things, so no need to panic. Just mention it to your surgical team so they can rule out a clot and help you figure out what's going on. Best wishes!

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.
