I think the PMs would be fine as long as you count whatever you're taking with Tylenol, (acetaminophen), in a 24 hour period. Don't go over 4000mg in 24 hours. Some people find that melatonin helps, too.I'm thinking about taking Tylenol PM at bedtime to help me sleep (because the nighttime discomfort/aches/pains in my operated leg make it hard to fall and then stay asleep). Are there any reasons this wouldn't be a good idea?
If your bad knee feels unreliable, you may need to continue using a walker for a bit longer, but that's OK.My bad right knee sometimes locks up unexpectedly, and I wonder if its unreliability (compared to a healthy knee) makes things harder for my new knee. It probably does, because I feel that my new knee is more dependable than the old one, so I may be relying on it more than it's ready for at times. Could that contribute to my new knee's stiffness, tightness, and swelling?
