Hi all, I think I'm doing OK considering all I went through in the previous 12 months. This time is so different. I am on half the medication (just 2 paracetamol & one 5mg oxycodone 4 times a day) than I was for the primary, & not in the same pain levels at all - but I wake up in the middle of every night drenched, to the extent of changing nightclothes & then shivering as the sheets are even wet! The clips came out 2 days ago, she commented that although the knee was warm to the touch, it was to be expected as the body went through the "rejection" cycle, eventually accepting it. This was all news to me, as I didn't have this with the primary. I don't think there is an infection, the swelling is moderate, & she didn't seemed at all concerned (nurse). I am constantly dropping off to sleep (also new to me), but I realise this was a much, much longer operation than 1st time around. Am I expecting too much? Do others have these night sweats?
