Well I discovered the importance of not letting pain control lapse. I was trying to increase the interval for the Dilaudid and rely more on icing and OTC meds but woke up night before last at about 4:00 AM in considerable urgent pain. The Ossur Cold Rush had warmed up and my last pain meds were mid evening the night before. My wife quickly got the icing machine topped off while I popped 6mg of Dilaudid and 30 minutes later the pain had receded to the point I could sleep. We set an alarm for 3:00 AM last night which avoided this gap. I guess welll see where I am in a week before we try to drop this step. The knee is still quite stuff though not overly swollen. I was given a long list of post-discharge exercises. I’m finding some of them painful so have listened to the voices on this board and moderated the routine to keep the pain tolerable. Hopefully I’m not hindering my ROM recovery by doing that... it’s hard not to have that running through ones head.
