    I have been trying to keep busy and get as much walking and upper body exercise as i can and trying to not give the pain in my knee a thought is no longer working. Im taking percocet but my dr is correct nothing is really going to stop my pain. My surgery is august 15 it will be here soon. My implant in my right knee is failing and as each day passes it hurts more and more. I will try my best to keep my spirits high try all my pain management tricks amd keep trooping on. It does help to read on here and no my bonesmart family understands my pain. Everyone take care and have a blessed night.:loveshwr::angel:

    Froggymom.
    I don't go to the knee side to often.
    'cos I know nothing'
    But your story so far and your persistence to get get to where you are is so courageous that you deserve the relief I know is coming your way.
    You are an inspiration to those still in pain (hip and knee) and seeking a resolution.
    Good look and God speed on 15th next.
    Joe.......

    Dear @froggymom, so sorry you're experiencing such awful pain. August 15th will be here so fast, and I sincerely hope you can realize some significant relief as a result of your surgery. I know you and I live fairly close to each other, and by then, I should be able to to drive. Let me know if there's anything I can do to support. I too am having a bit of a rough patch. I tweaked my knee getting out of bed yesterday morning' and the pain has been pretty bad since. The Norco and Diazapam are t helping in the same way they were before, so I am thinking about switching over to some Percocet that I had before, just for a day or two until this really bad pain subsides. In between taking meds, I'm sleeping a whole lot of the time, so I guess my body is taking the time it needs to heal. Hang in there, sweetie. Put will get better.

    If you do it soon enough, you can edit your own posts. I think there's about a 24-hour cutoff, although it could be 12 hours. Anyway, try it next time - just select the blue "Edit" box at the bottom of your post, the do the editing in the edit box that comes up, and Save.
