Hi all! I had mpfl reconstruction and chondroplasty with patellar microfracture a week ago. In English that means that I had cartilage removed from behind my kneecap, holes drilled into my kneecap. Also my dr made a graft from my hamstring to rebuild the ligament that keeps my kneecap stabilized. I'm still on 10 mg oxycodone and also got my staples out today. My dr also gave me a prescription for flexeril. I wake up at least four times every night with very painful spasms. They're in my calf, in my thigh, around my kneecap, everywhere. The flexeril doesn't seem to help and according to my dr and the nurses, they're normal. And I'm sure they are, but they're still painful! And the more it spasms, the more it swells. I can't bend it at all because it's so swollen. I'm keeping it iced and elevated and only get up to shower or use the bathroom. Any ideas?
