    I periodically get sciatica pain ...running from my butt to back of knee. I find that stretching helps. I also get relief from standing on a stair on my toes and pushing the heel towards the ground.

    I had all sorts of pains in leg, hip and buttock. It's all to do with the altered gait and the soft tissues having to adjust. I wouldn't bother with opioids personally, just try stretches and maybe heat, ice, a tens machine or a topical gel if the pain gets too bad. Good luck.
