I am 7 weeks post op of TKR. Except for the fact I feel as though I did not have a large enough prescription for pain meds post op, I was doing well until last Wednesday. I was in the car driving grand kids for three hours, taught a class after school and attended a meeting. The next day, I felt as though I was starting all over....without the use of pain meds. The government now regulates the # of opiates prescribed for orthopedic surgeries and I had 3 prescriptions of 30 tablets which are gone. Four days later while I've continued therapy but still need to ice a few times a day. I feel as though I am constantly working on the adhesions in my thigh and calf muscles.I have three more therapy sessions and then I am on my own. Is this setback abnormal? How can I avoid future setbacks?
