I'm doing pretty well 2 months after my surgery. My main issue in pain in my left leg just below the knee. It gets worse from too much sitting. I'm off major painkillers, taking 1800 mg Neurontin and 2400 mg Motrin daily. Sometimes the pain keeps me awake at night, and I'll take an Ambien.
At what point should I be worried about the pain? I am very active and I'm afraid I'm overdoing it. The problem is that the pain goes away when I walk strenuously. I've been told that is the endorphins kicking in. They tell me to stay active but not to overdo it. Some days I think it's getting worse, sometimes it seems to be better. Overall, it's still worse than before the surgery. Should I just wait it out a few more months before seeking help?
