    Hi MW
    My TENS unit helped when I had severe pain in very specific places like the back of my thigh and calf. I used it 24/7 at one point. For me, it helped take the edge off.

    So far I  have been recovering well. I am post op 3 weeks today and all seems well. I know i need to walk more and have not yet started pt. But I'm old enough to be your mother and am really just taking my time getting back to normal. 

    (The weather here in NJ is pretty gross right now so I  try to walk around the house!)

    Best of luck to you!
