Had replacement 6 days ago and was expecting general pain for a while post surgery. However, what I'm experiencing when using crutches is excruciating. When standing up I get surface pain across my knee and down shin that feels like sandpaper is being rubbed and down, as though the skin is being stretched. Years ago I had a large burn on the side of my leg that gave the same sensation when I stood up. Is it down to the bruising which is still coming out and how long will it continue? Only taking paracetamol or codeine in between anti infalamtories.
