I had both my knees replaced last year on July 11th. I went home the next day after showing the Dr I could walk. As long as you take your pain meds as instructed the pain in minimal. Night time is pretty bad but ice helps a great deal. It took 3 months for the pain to subside. Go to physical therapy it does work and keep moving. I’m doing great. I’m weight training and doing some running. It was the best thing I ever did.
Your knee is still healing. Remember, your surgeon had to move muscles, tendons, nerves, ligaments, etc to get to the joint and leg bone to do the replacement. You're only 2 months out and expecting a lot. It's going to take months for your healing to be complete. You shouldn't expect to walk around on a concrete floor and not hurt. You should still be doing the exercises you learned in pt, elevating your leg with ice when it's painful and taking it easy walking around Wal-Mart! I wouldn't expect it to be completely pain free. I still experience pain, but nothing like how it felt before my replacement. Just try and be a little bit more realistic in your expectations for so short an amount of time.
