I will abbreviate my story to the question; has anyone with Lymphedema in the leg had knee replacement surgery? I have experienced a few complications following surgery in March, including cellulitis which I was told was a secondary infection brought on by the lymphedema in my leg and the trauma of having the surgery. After 3 months I still have a very swollen knee and leg swells up considerably at the end of the day, I try to walk and exercise as much as I can but it does get painful and I still have to use a walking stick. I would be interested to know if other's have experienced similar problems.
