I never thought that the pain of a total knee replacement was going to be so excruciating!! The pain has been unreal! I was told that because I am younger that the recovery would be slower than if i was an older person!! The thing is i will need it doing again in about 10 years and that is frightening!! Don't get me wrong I am not a wimp and I have had the unfortunate luck to need spinal sugery over the last 5 years but it was nothing in comparison to this pain! Please help me and tell me when the pain will subside I am 6 weeks post op!!
