Omg, I had Min. Ivase. Total Knee Replacement 5 weeks ago. Reacted badly to pain meds and stayed in the hospital 3 days then a week in a nursing home. The pain is none stop even with the drugs (may as well take water). At night is totally unbearable (yes I use a pillow between the legs and ice).
Please oh Please tell me there is a time limit on pain!!! I am in Physical Therapy, limited during my hospital stay, nursing home, in house, and now outside of the home. I have gone to the pt center 3 days so far and Please tell me there are better days coming SOON!!!!!
I have been on Dilaudin, oxycodone, and vicadine.
I was to have my other knee done 4 weeks after the first.
