    TKR Toes Purple today

    Today my leg and foot are swollen. Maybe exercise would help? I'm even up 6 lbs since the surgery. Wondering if fluid as I haven't been eating a lot??? One day at a time, right? I know you shouldn't compare but I had my RTKR on June 26, 2019 at 8 am. I came home the 27th and had burning...
