Before I left hospital, I had a word with my nurse about using my TENS machine to help after discharge. I asked because it says not to be used with implanted devices and, of course, I have a large lump of metal where there used to be bone.
she was good enough to go talk with my surgeon and he said there was no problem doing this but the jury is still out whether it helps or not.
well, I have been using it for the past week as part of my support stuff and, alongside pain relief, icing and exercise, I think it does help.
purely subjective of course but maybe worth a try?
the unit I'm using comes from lloyds pharmacy, here in the uk and it is their dual channel one. It has different programs for different areas of the body and there is a special one for knees. It cost about 15 GBP if I remember right.
just a thought.
