I had knee replacement in Aug 2011. Dont have much motion and still in pain. So they r going to straiten knee all the way and bend knee all the way back break up scar tissue while im sleep. I had a very hard time w pain after first surgery because of tolerance to pain meds. I heard this was very painful and p.t. is important everyday after surgery. First day! Im still waiting on pain management doc. My doc has helped but cant continue. The whole reason had surg was to decrease pain and meds. Im depressed and only 34 yrs old. Frustrated!

hang in there, and as for the pain dr, are you in the hospital still, or at home? and with no pain meds till you see a pain dr? the dr who did the surgery is suppose to give you a supply to last till you see this pain dr. if your dr cant give it to you i say go to the emergency room, explain the pain your in from the surgery and tell the er dr you cant get pain meds till you see a pain dr., most times the er dr will give you some meds to take home. get on that drs appt, even if you have to be a walk in and wait too be fit in. pain is not fun and often some drs dont give a hoot about patients pain because they are not going thru it. i hope things start to get better for you. hang in there and come to the family here at dc. take care
