This is my sixth day after TKR and I always seem to be resting in bed. The pain is so bad that I can't sleep much. Should I be walking around the house more? Just going to the bathroom exhausts and drains me. This morning I had a shower and I couldn't wait to get back into bed. I try all the bed exercises but I am still not able to lift my leg up. I have tried the towel under the knee but the stabbing pain is really bad.
Unfortunately because of allergies I'm not very good with pain killers.The main tablet makes me very sickly but I have another tablet to help combat that.
I am very down today and keep crying. I just look at my knee and think 'What an earth have I gone and done?'
I know I'm being a big softee but reading other peoples experiences on here does help as I know others are suffering too.
It's just that it's so hard to exercise when there is so much pain.
