I had a total knee replacement 17 days ago.no one warned me how incredibly painful it would.i was given painkillers to take but was so nauseous I couldn't eat or take all of them.My doctor gave me Stemital which made it a bit better.8 days after the op I was feeling clammy then cold.my doctor thought the side of my knee was a bit warm so gave me penicillin,which I had in hospital for 3days.she also changed my codeine for Tradol.i took one that night and had an allergic reaction to it.caredoc called the ambulance but luckily didn't need to go to hospital.meds changed again.
i had my staples out 2days ago but for last 4/5 days I have been getting bad tingling/burning and stabbing pains around the scar.i am getting hardly any sleep.even with 4 painkillers I was awake most of the night.has anyone any idea what this is.(I am able to stand on new knee)
