Post-surgical muscle spasms
I had a total knee replacement of my right knee (Smith & Nephew titanium knee) on May 4th.  The last couple of weeks I have been experiencing moderate muscle spasms.  I was prescribed muscle relaxers to help me.  In the last couple of days the spasms have increased considerably and the pain in my knee has been excruciating.  I had constant throbbing pain at my incision site all last night that was almost more than I could bear.  Otherwise, my PT is on schedule, I'm up to 110 in my machine, and have been making great progress on recovery.
I have been homebound almost entirely since my surgery, except for this weekend when I had to be out for short periods of time on Fri.-Sun.  I was just wondering if I just overdid it on my outings or if something else could be happening.  The pain I had last night was worse than any I have experienced since my surgery.
