Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
i do not think that knee replacement is causing nay problem in your case. I think it is due to arthritis and pain has aggravated as you started walking more after knee replacement . I would suggest you to show it to orthopaedic surgeon to see if you need steroid injection in your ankles. Also use hot water fomentation and Diclofenac ointment.
