Patient :I'm 17 and 2 weeks ago I got a tibial tubercle osteotomy and mpfl reconstruction on my left knee, I just noticed while changing the dressing that on one side of the incision it is completely numb, I poked the area lightly with a small sharp tack and felt absolutely nothing, the whole knee is really swollen I just wanted to know if this level of numbness is normal... Thanks
