I am still taking hydrocodone for pain 4x a day and still experiencing pain. I have iced, done all excercises, go to Physical therapy ever since my surgery. I am still experiencing pain in both legs on a regular basis. I just don't get it. I excercise when I need to, rest, elevate, ice. I have done it all and have added swimming at the gym the last month. My doctor says sorry for your pain and has x-rayed 2x to see if everything was okay but still in pain. No one can answer what will make the pain stop. Just say everybody is different. I still swell in both legs too. I have just about have had it. My life is awful. I felt better bone on bone then I feel now. What other answers do I have?
