Hello and welcome to recovery! I am sorry you're off to a rough start. Glad to hear you are icing though.
If you're feeling the pain isn't effectively controlled by your current dosage and schedule, enough so that you're able to remain comfortably mobile, please speak with the office of your OS for suggestions, or an adjustment to meds.
Wishing you lots of comfort and a peaceful day!
KNEE RECOVERY GUIDELINES
As you begin healing, please keep in mind that each recovery is unique. While the BoneSmart philosophy successfully works for many, there will be exceptions. Between the recommendations found here, your surgeon's recovery protocol and any physical therapy you may engage in, the key is to find what works best for you.
1. Don’t worry: Your body will heal all by itself. Relax, let it, don't try and hurry it, don’t worry about any symptoms now, they are almost certainly temporary.
We try to keep the forum a positive and safe place for our members to talk about their questions or concerns and to report successes with their joint replacement surgery. While members may create as many threads as they like in a majority of BoneSmart's forums, we ask that each member have only one recovery thread. This policy makes it easier to go back and review history before providing advice.
