I think my leg feels longer now; is this possible?

In the majority of cases, your leg length will essentially be unchanged. In some cases, however, the leg is lengthened. This is usually the result of straightening out of a knee that had a significant bow preoperatively. At first, the length may feel awkward. Most people become accustomed to the difference, but occasionally a shoe lift may be necessary in the opposite extremity.
