Knee replacement

I had a knee replace and cannot take most pain meds.My therapist suggested I take 100 mil of celebrax every 6 hrs with a ibuprpfen for pain it helps  SOME . I could not take oxycodon and can't sleep with hydrocodon. I have did this for 5 days now but worry about the dosage ( which they say is not that high. I have celebrax in 200 and 100 for RH.  which I am suppost to take 200 a day but have only used on flare-up for years.

Hey Faye!

Well, it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation without knowing the relevant clinical details. I would suggest discussing the situation in detail with your treating doctor. If need be, opinion from a pain management specialist may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
