1 am 10 weeks post surgery, from a Bi Compartmental Mako plasty knee replacement with lateral release. The problems with this surgery are too numerous to count. I have gained 120 bend and almost completely straight. However, the swelling is still HORRIBLE, and hurts. I saw my surgeon yesterday. He said I may still be bleeding from the lateral release and took me off all anti-inflammitory drugs and Advil, told me to strictly take my Percoset 7.5mg. Okay I'm scared to death of being addicted to these things, and I've tried getting off them and the pain will not let me. I thought something might have gone wrong but he assures me it's okay, it's just a time issue. I called another surgeon yesterday and they won't see me until, minimum, 6 months post surgery. So am I being overly worried here or am I is this Dr a quack and I need to seriously see another doctor NOW....please any advice would be helpful
