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
I am also 34 years old, fractured my knee 8 weeks back and my PT is working on bending my knee and it hurt like hell today. My knee is stiff as i was not supposed to bend until today. I got only 40 degrees. I am thinking about Manipulation option. How are you feeling now after the Manipulation of knee? Did it help you? Please respond, thanks in advance!!
Hi. I had the knee replacement surgery Aug 4th. . I had no motion & tons of pain. . Then 2 weeks ago I had the manipulation. . I'm in agony! I still have no motion & more pain. I am going to see my doctor tomorrow. . I hope he has a good plsn. . Because I can't do this anymore. I wondered how u were doing & if u have motion. . I do hope you are doing better hun. . I just wish I could heal & move on with my life:)
I'm having mua on Monday. I had a partial knee replacement September 28th 2015 I have scar tissue that won't break loose even in therapy i can't bend my knee it's warm and pain full. It's been 2 months since my surgery. I know I will have pain after this it's going too suck because I have to start all over again.
I had partial knee replacement Feb 3 2016, unfortunately we had to flip a coin to choose which knee to do first bc the err u both r bad. Now it has been a month and I am doing terrible! I have no control of my thigh muscle n now they r talking about manipulation!! I am really trying not to give up but oh my goodness the pain. And now the other knee gave out and I don't think there is a snowball chance downstairs do I think I will be getting that one done!! Is anyone doing better after knee replacement and manipulation I'm scared!!
