I have had a knee replacement 9 weeks ago pain is subsiding

Resolved Question:

I have had a knee replacement 9 weeks ago pain is subsiding and also the burning prickling sensaions are much improved but i keep getting the feeling like when you touch something hot and the nerve signal doesnt travel to your brain but only to your spine for speed allowing you to move away from the heat source more quickly i.e a shock feeling. Do you think it is a result of the surgery

Yes the shock snsation is due to the nerve reated abnormality.

The nerves are still inflamed from the surgery and these symptoms will gradually improve over next 3-4 months.

You can take vitamin B12 1000 mcg daily, B6 50 mg daily for the nerve health.
