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.
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.
