Finally Figured Out What

Hi everyone. After almost three months of recuperating from a total knee replacement surgery, I have finally figured out what is meant by “pain med”. At first, I thought it meant that the medications were supposed to alleviate pain completely. That just was not so. What exactly does “pain med” mean?

In fact, no matter what type I was given, there was still pain. Sometimes the pain was unbearable. It always existed in some form. So, I resigned myself to the fact that a pain med just doesn’t work.

Then, I ran out. I didn’t think it as any big deal. Usually, I took one pain med one-half hour before my pt or exercise.   Well, this time I just went for a walk thinking “What’s the use of a pain med, anyways? The term is joke.” Wow….what a difference! The pain was intense after finishing my exercise routine. I could hardly move my leg.

So, the verdict is….pain meds help take the edge off of pain. They decrease the pain intensity. They do not totally eliminate pain, as some (like me) would think.

Find interesting? Kindly share…

    Glad to know I am not the only one who felt like this. Yes pain meds have helped but never taken away the pain completely. I am 3 1/2 months post TKR & trying to get completely off even tramadol. At 6 wks post op I had to get a manual manipulation since my knee wouldn’t bend past 65 degrees. Soooo only 2 1/2 months since that. Still in PT but Rom is only at 104 with just me & 125 with PT pushing. Very frustrating.

  • Hi Lisa,
