So I'm now nearly 6 weeks post op TKR on my left knee.
At 5 weeks I had physio had 0/100 range which she was pleased with and asked how I was.
I told her I wasn't sleeping well and waking at 3am every night, lost my appetite and lost 3/4 of a stone and mood a little low, she said I looked pale and advised me to see GP for blood tests to make sure all way OK.
Booked in with GP but saw a new doctor, explained everything and without and tests said I was probably already addicted to Tramadol!!
He prescribed one 10mg of Amitriptyline which I'd never had before.... Never again!
Had one tablet at night and woke 16 hours later and felt like a zombie and not touched them since.
Seeing consultant in 4 days for 6 weeks check up and will get his advise.
Just want to sleep and keep pain under control and worried about taking Tramadol as well now.
