    Thank you, Jockette! My knee used to disturb my sleep at night. So my OS suggested icing and it helped. Last night I tried to go without icing and again I had disturbed night due to pain level atabout 4.

    When I ice my knee, I feel needle pricks around the incision. Has anyone experienced it? My incision has completely healed and there is no swelling. How long do I need to do the knee exercises? After 10 days, when I start going to work, I will not be able to do anything except walkin and, some...

    Sorry to know about your cat. Hope she feels better soon. From the beginning, I had not done much of icing and elevation as both were making me very uncomfortable. Initially I did have some swelling around my ankles too. But nothing helped me much. So I stopped. I understand your problem. My...
