General & Family Physician 's  Response
Knee replacement surgery it self does not cause any dizziness or sweating.
Please check your blood pressure and blood sugar.
In addition, Post operative stress may also cause dizziness and sweating.
Please confirm the side effects of the drugs you are currently taking after surgery with your primary care physician.
Please write back for further queries.
