Knee replacement and pain

Hi. Some of you know I had my knee replaced about three weeks ago. Today I go to the office for pt. Before that the pt was done at home. I am dreading the ride there on the bumpy para transit bus, and the ride home. Yesterday the pain med ran out, and I will tell them I am hurting, especially when I rehab. But this doc told me I would not have any pain, so I guess I already know his answer if I ask for a refill.

Anyone out there have a total knee replacement and experience with the pain? I cannot take NSAIDs or Tylenol or tramadol.


Bummer! I was going to recommend Meloxicam but it is an NSAID. Try asking a pharmacist as well as a doctor!
