This is my second knee replacement and have to say every person and every knee is healing differently.Im 4 weeks in to recovery and it is the worst at night time...sleep? Whats that..?totally backwards in time right now.Have to say ..since my 1st knee replacement have learned...dont be brave ...take pain meds...regularly and keep in your system or you wont be able to move and do your therepy. If what you have meds. wise doesnt work ...get them to give you something that does..Id say...first 8wks..are crazy ..after that starts to work in your favor.Ice is very important,helps keep swelling down and inflamation thats what makes it harder to move.I will agree that once you get passed 6 to 8 months you will be glad you had it done.although I realize there are those few exceptions.Trying to stay hopeful going through this my second time around knowing this will eventual feel better.My first knee has some tightness at times but atleast no more pain from bone on bone. Getti g older makes things ache unfortunatly. Glad im on the recovery side of things now. Hoping I help someone to feel that it does eventually get better.good luck to you all.
