KNEE REPLACEMENT
I HAD KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERY 9 WEEKS AGO.  THE PAIN IS SO INTENSE.  THE ONLY TIME IT SEEMS NOT TO HURT IS IF I CAN SLEEP.

I REALLY DO NOT WANT TO TAKE ANY PILLS ALL THE TIME FOR PAIN.  I JUST AM BESIDE MYSELF.   I ASKED THE DR AT MY POST OP AND HE STATES THIS IS NORMAL..  MY KNEE ALSO CLICKS SOMETIMES.  HE STATES THIS IS NORMAL TOO.  

PLEASE HELP.  I NEED SOME ADVICE.

I have had several hip surgeries and my hip clicks as well. I was taking pain medication but it ended up becoming more than what it should have been so I stopped that. I did have a cortosone shot done which has helped! Good luck to you!

I am 6 months out from total knee replacement.  I still have pain.  I was still taking pain meds at 9 weeks.............I am still taking them...........I also had my other one scoped and will need it replaced too.

I can totally relate with your pain, some days I can hardly stand it.  What kind of pain meds do they have you on?   Oh, my knee clicks too........my dr said I have to remember that it is now mechanical and it will do that, it gets where you dont notice that too much.

I am here to talk any time.
