Another Use for TKR Pain Meds

Hi Everyone,

I noticed that some of you have been wondering about pain meds for dealing with tkr pain. Even though I am not promoting using pain meds at every opportunity, some time they just make things easier. Some may use pain meds to provide relief during sleeping after a tkr (or…attempting to sleep..:?). I never thought of that since I don’t like the thought of taking drugs to go to sleep. (I’m not much for medication-based sleep aids.)

Others may find pain meds helpful throughout the day to make functioning more manageable since the tkr leg can hurt so often without reason. Still others may find that a pain med eases the discomfort after exercising.

While going for my daily walk this morning, I thought about sharing another use for pain meds that I haven’t written about before…

As a preventative aid. Take a pain med 30 minutes before exercising, either while preparing for tkr physical therapy or any time afterwards. Taking it 30-minutes prior to exercising gives your body enough time to absorb the drug. This was recommended to me during my therapy period immediately after my tkr surgery.

The med is supposed to take the edge off of therapy. Initially, I tried it and didn’t receive much help. It may work for you during these stages, though. I just remember the extreme pain of having the therapist pulling and pushing on my tkr leg. No amount of drugs could have eased that pain.

I have found out that, three years post-tkr, sometimes taking a pain med prior to exercising does makes a difference. I mentioned before about getting used to a new shoe lift and recuperating from a sprained ankle. Well, while preparing for my daily walk, my tkr-side leg joints were rather stiff and painful.

So, I took two AC & C’s and went for a walk. There was no discomfort or pain. It was great. Plus, as an anti-inflammatory, the aspirin kept the ankle swelling down. Remember, though, my pain level is nowhere near what it was the first year post-tkr.

After the initial stages of tkr rehab, pain meds can come in handy at different times.

Do you have any experiences to share? Please do…
