For those that have had multiple knee surgeries your opinion please. I have had too many problems with my bionic knee ( putting it bluntly it sucks!! )Now I am in a psottion which really stinks. The Specialist that I being referred to I will not be able to see till the 15th one reason had to switch insurance and does not go into effect till May 1st and the Dr. that referred me say I should talk to the new Dr. concerning my issues. ( I think that was more from his nurse not the Dr. himself. I am going to see my pain Dr. next week but now what should I do? I am worried if I get some stronger medication it might effect how my body reacts to the meds I will get at the hospital. If you take pain meds for a period of time the body builds up a tolerance so that is why I am hesitant. I have been told this surgery that I need is going to hurt even more so then a typical TKR due to they have to do something to the tibia since there is going to a significant amount of bone loss due to all the TKRs I have had and there is nothing left to place the implant on. So there is my concern why am I asking because it hurts and it hurts a lot I woke up this morning my knee is more swollen then normal just puttering around in the yard flat out hurts so am I being too paranoid about asking for stronger meds or should I just tough it out? Really hate being miserable.
