I’m a week out from surgery now. Pain is managed well and I’m still icing around the clock. (I’m currently taking one Percocet every 6 hours plus Ibuprofen but the first 3-4 days I took the Percocet two every 6 hours.). My worst discomfort is muscular (calf & quad). The quad is better each day but it seems the calf loosens up when I walk and stretch a bit but is super tight again next time I stand. If I walk a lot, I feel the deep bone ache later in the day. My first PT visit is tomorrow morning and I’ll report on that afterwards. I’m so grateful for this group. Reading all of your recovery stories is really helpful!
