Total Knee Replacement-pain


Posted by Mel

My 70 year old mother had a total knee replacement on January 12 and still is having terrible pain.  She cries everyday and depends on pain medication to just get through the day.  Could there be something wrong?  What do you suggest she do?  The doctor took x-rays said everything is ok.  She can't take it anymore.

Thanks,

I sympathize with your mom ,I am 68 and had the replacement in 2008. My pain has become worse and right now I can barely walk. I am so frustrated. Has she tried aqua fitness with supervision , it does help. I am searching for some answers to the pain problem.  haw@bell.net. Tell her to hang in there and keep moving, don't give into the pain. Keep in touch
