I posted in a previous thread that I was having trouble with my knee (well, behind the knee mostly). Now the pain is radiating below and above the knee, even to my butt. I'm having to take more pain pills now than I was for a while, but even that doesn't take care of the pain. I've also got muscle spasms on the side of my back. How often can you take meds like flexeril? Right now I take 2 a day, one morning and one pm. The pills are 10 mg. Wonder what the max. is for taking this? Also, I'm taking two hydrocodone-APAP 5-500 tablets every 6 hours as needed. Not sure what the max. is on those either.
If I stay off my feet and just stay in the bed, the pain subsides. I'm 5 months post-op and don't want to stay in the bed! I've been off the leg as much as possible for the last week and it just isn't getting any better. I'll call my doc tomorrow. Hope he doesn't want an MRI because the cost for that will come out of my pocket...new insurance with a $5,000 deductible that only started in Sept.
I'm really bummed out today...I was doing so great until the last week.
Anyway, thanks for putting up with the whining! :''( :''(
