Hi all I was wondering if anyone else got the new pain cathater with knee replacement. It's brand new they only started it in our hospital 2 weeks before I had mine that was 8 weeks ago. It's a baseball size bottle full of numbing meds. It was placed in my leg about 3 inches from my incision and its in a little black bag with a shoulder strap so you can carry it with you. It releases numbing medicine on top of your knee continuously. It's lasts 5 days then you just pull it out at home. It was amazing. I definitely could feel the difference once it was gone. Also my dr used super glue to close my incision then when I went home the bandage he put on it was called a honeycomb and you can shower with it on. My dr does nothing but knee replacements all day long so he's good at it. I feel so blessed to have him.
