Hi - sorry no one answered your question. I suspect it's because no one can really know for sure - everyone is different depending on how much had to be done in the surgery, how much inflammation you have, how your body reacts to pain killers, how much you did that day - the list goes on and on. I notice you didn't say anything about being on an NSAID like ibuprofen to help with inflammation. You might want to ask your doctor about that - I imagine they will want to get you off the narcotics as soon as possible and onto a medication like that. Yes, my pain is worse when it rains, but I have a lot of arthritis. Major storm fronts cause a lot more pain too. Hopefully you are doing better by now or will be soon - Best wishes -
I am also sorry no one answered your question, but you have seen your doctor by now. I didn't even see your question until tonight! How are you doing if I may ask? Is your new knee ok? Hope all goes well with it, & you pain subsides soon. For future questions I think I would post under different headings too. I don't think after looking up knee replacement on Drugs.com to many people have come here for this particular problem. Now had you posted under "pain", you wouldn't have had time to read all the responses you would have received, so please don't give up on us. We have a great group of supportive people on here for about any problem you can imagine. I wish you all the best...
