Update on progress and Sharp pains in knee

Posted , 9 users are following.

I am almost 6 weeks out and have experience severe burning nerve pain until the doctor put me on Neurontin. After the first pill I experienced no  burning nerve pain.  That has given me my life back to a certain extent. I am off of hydrocodone and only take an 800 ibuprofen in the morning. I still have sensitive nerve pain when different materials touch the knee but that is not real bad. I am glad for the warm weather and I can still wear shorts. I find silky type Pjs help with sleeping. The sheets can't touch the knee. Not sure what I will wear when the weather gets cooler. Maybe I'll throw on a lidocaine patchsmile I have a lot of those leftover from foot surgery I had. I still have a lot of stiffness which keeps me from achieving more bend. I am told that will take a long time ( like 6 months)to subside. ( bummer).

Now my new problem is a sharp pain in my knee when I walk. I noticed it a lot as I was cooking dinner last night. Every time I put pressure on my leg pain would shoot in my knee. Has anyone else experienced a sharp pain in the knee when putting pressure on the leg? What if anything can you do about it?
