Hi Anonymous,
Leg cramps can sometimes be so painful. Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHer. If your potassium is low, this will certainly cause leg cramping and eating bananas will certainly help as well as taking a potassium supplement. Since you had a knee replacement, have you talked to your physician about your leg cramps? What did he or she say?

Thank you,
