Pain Immediately after a Total Knee Replacement

Hi everyone..I have been asked by quite a few of my readers what the pain is like immediately after my total knee replacement. Well, it seems to go through phases.

While laying in the hospital bed, not moving, there was no pain. There are three reasons for this:

1) My knee was continually iced. Icing is the best form of pain med around. In addition to being cheap, it is all-natural. 🙂

2) I wasn’t moving, other than to reach for the tv remote or eat. No wait…I wasn’t eating due to the nausea from anesthesia. Anyways, there was not much movement of my leg.

3) The femoral block (meds used to numb the major nerve found in the femur) was still working. In my case, it worked for about 3 days. My entire thigh area was numb due to this.

So, if one is scared about the amount of pain immediately after a total knee replacement….don’t be. And…if you do have pain…it’s only temporary.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

    As stated everyone us different in there pain level. When I woke up from my TKR 3 1/2 months ago I was in a lot of pain right away. The most pain I have ever felt. Off the chart of the pain scale. I too had the nerve block & until it wore off I thought I had seen the worst pain. Not true. That’s when the real pain happened. So much pain when I moved to get up & would cry so hard I couldn’t breathe. I was on 5 different pain meds & they barely kept the pain at bay. I have heard others say it wasn’t that bad and others say it was. I just know my experience & it was unbelievable.
