I am going back to my surgeon on Wednesday and getting prepared for the meeting. As I fear I will be quite tearful when asked "and how are you" (I arrived at the office this morning in tears) I want to have a list at the ready with all the points to be discussed so we keep it very factual.
The elephant in the room is having to have my knee bent under anesthetic as the bend is still only at 80 after 6 weeks. So with this we will also have to discuss pain medication.
I cannot take any opiates (pethidine, tramadol or whatever they are called in the UK) and the pain meds I am on are a bit hit and miss or have stopped working really. But after the manual bend, I am pretty sure I will be in lots of pain again so my question to you all out there: which (strong) pain meds have you received which you can recommend so I can discuss with my surgeon if we have an equivalent over here??
Your feedback would be SUUUUUPER appreciated. Thanks so much!
