Experiencing nerve spasm's below surgical repaired right knee. Having impulse shocks on walking. Is this a normal healing process?

I am experiencing what feels like nerve spasm s below my surgically repaired knee replacement (right knee). Surgery was July 2012. I have been having impulse shocks in my right shin area that immobilize me temporarily when it happens. Some days are worse than others and it happens only when I am walking, not at rest. Is this a normal healing process? I have had no other complications and thought I was cruising along. I am losing the numbness in the knee which I have had and am wondering if thses nerve shocks are the nerves re-activating themselves.

Thanks for writing to us.
After a surgical repair, there is some stretching of the nerves or swelling involved which can cause the sensations like you are having. These are likely to subside in a week without any treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
