Help!! Severe Knee Pain 2 Weeks after 4 Level ACDF

I had my ACDF August 17th and was recovering fine until Monday, when I woke up with shooting pains from both knees to my ankles. I can barely walk in the mornings.
Now, two days later, most of the pain is concentrated just in my knees and seems to be getting worse.

I had stopped taking any pain meds as of last week but just took 2 oxycodone, 1 tramadol and 1 gabapentin, which seems to be taking the edge off a little bit.

I've also tried elevation and ice.

Could this be related to neck surgery? Seems so bizarre!

  • By the way, I did call the Dr. today and I'm waiting to hear back.
  • Val,

    Not likely related to your neck. Could it be you have been walking more and more than normal and you had knee issues you didn't realize prior if your neck had you down?
  • Thanks TamTam, it's the weirdest thing. I haven't been overly active and I've NEVER had issues with my right knee.. ugh.
