I just really thought I'd have a lot less pain by now. I had my ankle replaced and it sure wasn't anything like this and by now I was off all drugs and felt almost 90% nomal with doing anything in life. I still can't stand or sit longer than 30-45 minutes without having a lot of discomfort. I hardly have ever taken any pain pills in my life (58 yrs old) but I set an alarm now so I remember to take them every 4 hours now with this. Dr. says healing and ROM are great for time after surgery but I still feel like Ii just cann't do anything. My depression ccomes and goes but hits me really hard because I don't feel like I can do much of anything. Part of this is also that I have to get my other knee done beore the end of the year and I just gt sick thinking of it..What is the average amount of time you all have taken pain pills and dealt with this ? Thanks, Peg
