Well -Well phone call from physiotherapists and long chant -finished off stating they are sorry but there is nothing they could do for me - but to refer me back to the GP for better pain medication and to wait for surgery , :headbang:

@bland9 So very sorry for your loss! This disease is just wicked. I lost my mum to it in August and since she was in the US I have not been able to travel. I hope you have family here to help you through this sad time.

Unfortunately we really can't recommend particular pain medication as we don't know your whole medical history. Please call your GP tomorrow or your pharmacist.

So very sorry for the loss of your sister. I know from working on a cancer unit that grief and stress can increase pain greatly. Not discounting that you don’t have knee pain, only that this tragedy has probably increased it. You and your family are in my prayers!

I am so sorry for the pain you are currently going through , both physical and in your heart.
I used amitriptyline before and seriously did not get on with it at all, my GP has currently prescribed Gabapentin for me and for the first time in over a month there has been an easing of my pain. Both of these drugs are used for nerve pain and to treat fibromyalgia, it might be worth discussing it with your GP since you had such a bad reaction to amitriptyline. Lyrics is also another drug used for the same conditions. Your GP knows you and how you might react to certain drugs and only he can accurately prescribe for you.
I do hope you can get some relief :console2:

I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my deepest condolences.

As for your pain, since you are using crutches, why not try a walker? To me I'd think you might feel a little more stable when moving about. Its just a suggestion, but it can't hurt to try.

Pain and grief aren't good companions, maybe chat with your GP about everything.

Knee pain still very bad and circulation in the left leg not improving neither , nearly 3 years of constant pain and walking with bent leg and on crutches so nothing changes, What really bothering me at this time is a silly thing like buying new trousers- my legs are so swollen its near on impossible to buy a pair that fit -waist size ok but the leg size , every pair I tried is to tight around the leg, any suggestions :hairpulling:

@blan Yoga pants tend to have wider legs! I wear them almost everyday! I sometimes wear leggings, too!
Just find something comfortable for you!
I am 2 months out and haven't looked at trousers or jeans just yet!
