    Best shoes to wear after knee replacement surgery?

    I had a full knee replacement, and I still have some lingering problems with having sensation in my knee and leg. I am very concerned about wearing the correct shoes so that I don't cause any further problems for the new knee or hurt my good knee.  I also want to pick shoes that will be good for my feet, since I've had surgery on both and have swelling in both. Any suggestions would be welcome.

    Hi Peggy,  I had bi-lateral knee replacements done 06/19/12. I had alot of swelling , so at first I wasn't able to wear shoes. Then I wore croc type of shoe any thing I could get my feet in. Now 2months later A comfortable sneaker is good. you need something that stays on (no flip flops) and you can walk with, putting your heel down first and following through with a full step.comfort is the main thing. If you still have a problem contact your Dr. Take care  Jemma
