On july 27, 2016, i had a total knee replacement and its been a nightmare. Operated Wednesday, Thursday started therapy, fri i couldn't even lift my leg. Went home Fri, had home therapy Saturday. Pain still at a 10. This continued for 2 weeks. Then it was out patient therapy. 1 month later, knee was worse. Now i got swelling, csnt bend and does not get straight. Stopped pt,. THEN MANIPULATION! !!. Holy smoke. That was on a Monday. At 3:31am, i thought i was giving birth, and im a guy. Pain just hit me. Tears came to my eyes . I really have much more respect for women cause i know this does not compare but for a man, it was MY giving birth. Started pt again, 2 weeks in, i still can't sleep cause of pain. Its 1:30am now. I can't take it anymore. Tired of pills, not eating, miserable, stuck in house. Any tips s on how to deal with this pain? No more pills please.
