Hello folks. Just thought I would post a 15 day update.
Had staples removed yesterday, another milestone. It wasn't real painful having them removed but I did feel every one of them none the less. Getting comfortable and getting a good nights sleep is still the worst. Still cant sleep more than about 90 min max without getting up in pain. I'm on Percocet which helps but doesn't manage the pain as well as I hoped. Tried some melatonin last night for sleep. The doc gave me some sleeping pills yesterday but thought I would try this first. During the night I woke up just as often but I got back to sleep much quicker so overall a much better nights sleep.
Has Anyone else tried melatonin before? Maybe tonight I will give the sleeping pills a try.
Oh I did ask 2 diff pharmacists and the doc about taking nytol to help sleep.
Each said there was no issue when taken with Percocet. Not sure about other meds though.
As far as my knee goes, there are definite improvements but it is still stiff, stiff, stiff and
painful. Been doing exercises 3x a day and always icing right afterwards. Also still very swollen. I am typically not easily discouraged but man, this is draining.
If I come across any miraculous shortcuts or anything to help sleep, ease the pain or bring comfort in any way I will be sure to pass it on.
Until next time. God bless
