I had my left TKR in May 2017 and my pain level is 3/10. My TKR bending was 113 three weeks ago. However my Right knee is schedule for TKR in October this year but my pain level is 8/10.
I have been given three shots of Orthovisc three weeks ago on my right knee to buy some time for me to recover from my left TKR but no change in pain. I also can not bend my Right knee at all, thus making walk with limp. I also still can not sleep at either side. I do put pillows in between knees but can not hold more than 10 minutes. I sleep on and off streight . I started going to work with my doctor permission 2/week for 4 hours and it makes my both the knees swollen and very painful. I use ice and ellevation only before bed time. Good news is that I can feel that I am on my recovery mode as well as surgical left TKR. I can bend better but I definitely feel stiff and little swollen ( all the time ) I am eagerly waiting for TKR for right knee.
I would appreciate If some one from this site can advise to control my pain ( already using ice+elevation and can take only Tylonol ) And secondly why I am not been able to sleep at side and what can I do to sleep better and sound.
Thanks to everybody who are involved in Knee pain forums and advise and motivate each other.
