Up to 9 weeks post TKR it was an awful journey. All the symptoms a lot on here have experienced, nausea, extreme fatigue, lack of sleep and constant pain. Plus others. I had lost 16 pounds in weight. My husband took me to GP who sent me for tests but in the meantime prescribed Pregabalin to block nerves to relieve pain and aid sleep.
Within 36 hours I felt so much better, nausea reduced considerably and sleeping for much longer periods. Appetite returned and energy levels boosted. Put 3 pounds back on. Now at 10 and half weeks post TKR.
However made the mistake of doing too much this week so ice and elevation. Just thought I’d share as I know a lot on this forum are as down as I was and maybe these type of meds will help. I know I’ve still got a long way to go but my outlook now is more positive.
