Hi everyone, I was on this forum back when I had my right PKR and just had a TKR on my left knee 8/22/18 and need support. While I was at the recovery center things were wonderful. Very little pain. Was able to do the exercises PT wanted. It seemed like a dream then I came home Friday afternoon. At the surgical center I was given 5 mg oxy pills about 3-4 times a day and 1000 mg of Tylenol a day doses given every 6-8 hrs. I just assumed since the pain control was working that was what I would go home with. Instead I was sent home with Norco 10/325. The Norco did not work my pain levels over the weekend were 7-10. I called the surgical center Sat morning (they had said over and over again call with any issues). I told the person who answered the phone about the pain and she gave me the number for the on call doctor. I called him and he said there is nothing I can do you would need a written script and that is impossible. Try urgent care but they will probably not write anything for pain. So this weekend I toughed it out adding more Tylenol. Monday morning I called my OS office and he was not in but the PA was. I have chronic pain and she did not feel comfortable giving me anything else I should call the pain clinic. I called the pain clinic and the nurse said they don’t get involved with surgical pain. One smart thing I did 2 weeks before my surgery I spoke with my pain clinic PA and asked if this happened would he be available and he promised he would. I told the nurse to go speak with him and she called back and he gave me 1 week’s worth of Percocet 5/325. Anyway got pain under control and went to PT. I have used this facility before and they always were gentle and never caused pain. I got a new guy. It was horrible - he kept doing things that cause me to almost cry and I told him to stop he had the nerve to say “your knee has been fixed so I can’t hurt your knee . I am just hurting your feelings:”. I was shocked. I kept telling him to stop and he kept saying it is just your feelings. He said this is easy next time it will be much harder and rougher. I have been miserable ever since. I am going to cancel my next PT appt but after that appt I have PT people I had before but I just don’t feel I can trust them. I have an appointment with the pain clinic Thur and will speak to him about pain control and I see my OS Tues. My wound is still slightly seeping. I thought after 6 day the seeping would stop. My knee hurts all the time. I use the Polar Care. Getting up to start walking is so hard. My foot and heel hurt. I have to walk on my tiptoe for a couple of minutes then can walk normally. Unfortunately my husband had to go back to work yesterday and it is hard being on my own. He has set me up before he leaves. He will be home tomorrow and then work Fri and be off for 4 days. I just need support at this point. My leg is aching from the thigh to the foot and so I tried one Percocet did not help after an hour so took a second one (script says 1-2 every 8 hours). I am just afraid they won’t give me any more. I take eliquis for a blood thinner and norflex for a muscle relaxer (took that already for other pain issues). Thanks for listening.
