Ooh 29th May Ann That's good news, it's not far off. Tell me the title of your pre-op thread please. No worries about the stick. I looked it up on google - (when in doubt 'google it')! I learnt how to judge the correct height and also which side to carry it. All sorted. Don't stay on those steroids too long! (that's a joke, I know you need to stay on them as long as the medics advise!)

Hi Ann finally found you. I'm also having intense leg cramps in calf and burning across ankle mostly on right side ( hip replaced side) I can feel it coming on and run for an ice pack. When that didn't work reached for heating pad . The pain is so intense can't put foot down that all I can do is cry and try to walk it off. Then saw neuro Rx for gabapentin after taking 1200 mg in added increments started feeling crazed and off balance. So off all drugs. Sticking to quinine water, magnesium and potassium hoping that will work. I also take Hylands leg cramp homeopathic bought on Amazon (of course) also can buy in drugstore. A few under tongue at night. Does it work? Eh Seeing neuro tomorrow for more help with the legs, keep thinking it could be a nerve hitting somewhere. I stretch on a foam roller everyday to stretch back, and now doing pelvic tilts for posture issues. Also started using weights again for shoulders, but each time lift left arm hear the grinding of bone on bone!! Dreading thought of another surgery. Also using lidocaine patches in shoulders. Can use for up to 12 hrs a day.
And the saga continues....,,.,

Hi @susanne I have suffered from cramp both before my op and afterwards in my toes and legs. I find that drinking tonic water has helped a great deal and I hardly ever get them now. My Mother who is 90 swears by 4 corks sewn into a small cotton bag under her bottom sheet, but I would say that is an old wives tale!
Since tonic water contains quinine, I think you are thinking on the right lines.

If you're going to drink tonic water, be sure to get a good brand like Canada Dry or Schweppe's. They have real quinine in them. Many of the cheaper brands actually have no quinine.

@Majic. I've been told to put s bar of soap under sheet to relieve cramps
I feel them coming on mostly in right leg. Had taken meds for restless leg syndrome but neuro thinks it's more nerve pain
Just can't win
Thanks. Susanne

Quick update on this knee. It does every thing it should. It bears weight well. It's aching because of the strain of my other leg being very weak. It's lovely and straight. The revision was an overall success.

The only downside is I have constant burning every night from my hip to ankle or vice versa. The GP has diagnosed me with restless leg syndrome. No treatment until after the op on the other knee. I'm going to chat to the OS when I see him about this xx

I will keep you posted xx

Good news Ann. Restless leg has bugged me for years. There is a homeopathic remedy called Hylands. It might be worth a try. I've haven't tried it yet, but plan to.

Good to hear that the metal knee is doing well! :yay:

I'm sorry about the restless legs, though.

It won't be long now before the other knee is fixed.

I think it's all in my head but the cream is great!! A little piece of Xanax doesn't hurt either

My hot and burning leg in bed was cured after about 3trips to a very good osteopath. It was a s pinal problem I think. I needed an osteopath after my hysterectomy as well. He said it was being lifted awkwardly when under anaesthetic. Worth trying if it carries on after your next knee is done.
