I'm new to this, so please bare with me. Doc told my husband he was disappointed at how much arthritis is in my knee joint (bone on bone); fixed a small tear in maniscus; and cleaned up what he could. I'm starting day 3 post-op and have what I consider extreme swelling and sometimes excruciating throbbing pain. The pain meds barely work. I haven't been able to see incision area because of the wrappings (I can remove them tomorrow). I cannot place any weight on that leg, nor steaighten/bend it. I have spent the entire time.e since surgery elevated and iced. I keep reading how people are walking and starting excersizes right after surgery...
Is there something else I should be doing? I'm almost 49yrs old and usually heal quickly.
