Hi again, I will now be 3 weeks post TKR on Saturday & I seem to be doing really well during the days in all aspects - walking around downstairs in the house without crutches, pain management, ice packs, clips all out ok, exercises etc. However, nighttimes are a completely different ballgame!! I have slept for a maximum of 3 hours!!! I really think now that its more because stiffness sets in, making it extremely uncomfortable to settle to get any longer. Having worked my meds out to have some left for during the night does not seem to be working either. adding an icepack helps for about half an hour, but not enough to get back to sleep!! I know there is not going to be a quick fix answer to this, but can anyone tell me your experiences/timespan/remedies that might help on this please?? Many thanks x
