Hello I am in my 60's and have OA in both knees and neck. I am waiting for xray results on my back as I suspect it may be there too. I am in pain every day but manage with just paracetamol. I think I
will probably need knee replacements in the near future. My question is does anyone know about
the pain post op and what medication is used in the first weeks. I ask this because I cannot take
codeine type drugs as they cause stomach cramps and constipation (I have IBS) I also find any
antibiotics do the same. I can take the odd ibuprofen but once again have to be careful because of
the IBS and reflux. I am concerned that as pain gets worse and post op there would be nothing I
could use for pain relief. Would be grateful for any info.
