I am 16 days today post TKR. I have been doing so well. I have a good bend on my knee and can get a good straight knee but the last couple of days I have been unwell with terrible pain. I haven't known what to do with my leg. I am just lying on my bed waiting for the next pain relief. I didn't sleep a wink last night the pain was so sharp it made me jump. I contacted the hospital re pain relief only to find I haven't been taking the correct doseage of meds infact only half of what I can take. I am now on codeine,paracetamol plus Tramadol for breakthrough pain. Is this normal to relapse after doing so well? How long does the pain last before it starts to improve? I could have quite easily chopped my leg off last night. X X X X
