I am feeling better now. I had right knee replacement surgery on 4/03. And, Until 5/07 was pure hell. The knee was healing nicely but, the medicines designated to curb the pain, caused me undue stress and side effects that was worse than the knee itself. Massive itching all over me, then change of medicine for another caused severe stomach pains like knives in my stomach. and every time I tried to connect to the surgeon to change my meds a new problem.
I thought I was destined to fail. This is the second knee replacement with a history of bone and joint surgeries. The good news is that I got a new medicine from my regular GPN that is actually a bandage. And it worked. I can sleep and the only side effect is sweating. And any woman with hot flashes are familiar with this. This I can deal with......Celebration. I must get well and not lose my independence. I still have a couple of foot surgeries to go yet..........Yea.
