    Hi  just had knee replacement 2 weeks ago i'm in terrible pain, tried cocodamol with ibuprofen, tramadol, morphine, and still in pain, doctor is trying me on neproxen today, havent slept for 14 days, climbing the walls here and you just cant go anywhere your partner is sleeping so you have to go downstairs and watch tv which i am not keen on anyway so bored and so much in pain, stalpes out in the morning hopefully slight less pain i dont think you should be allowed out of hospital until you can manage your pain, and there should be a 24hour call line for you to speak to someone, no one should have to suffer in pain this day and age, lets see how this new drug sums up, most prob be down again tonight, max

    Hi Lesley

    It has been suggested by my consultant to a MUA in about 3 weeks if my knee ROM doesn't improve....it is now at 80 to 85 degrees after  9 weeks post op. Could you please tell me if after having your MUA did improve the ROM and have you still got good ROM.

    Thanks

    I had a left tkr done May 6, 2016 and a right tkr done on sept. 16, 2016.  I still have a lot of pain in both knees.  I remember my dr. Saying that 95% of tkrs are successful.  I like my surgeon and he is concerned.  I have had a blood test to see if my body was rejecting the metal in the implant as well as a bone scan. All the bone scan showed is bone inflammation.  I go back to see my doctor in a couple of months to get my knees xrayed and go from there.  My implants are not loose (they would have to be replaced by more surgery).  I get down but am thankful that I can get around.  Flexion is 125 and extension is close to 0.  I feel your pain.  Hang in there.  I haven’t given up.  I wish you the best.  You are not alone.
