Hi, Just had total knee replacement 8th Nov. I really wonder if I would have this done again. I had already lower back problems and trouble with feet osteoarthritis and nerve pain. Since the op my back and feet have been twice as bad and I have a spasmodic pain just below my knee so sudden it makes me almost shout out. I have not slept due to be unable to to get comfortable in bed with the pain. When the tablets supplied b the hospital ran out my husband rang our GP and I was given Naproxen twice daily it helps a little but burns my stomach badly. It is quite frightening and I try to do the exercises as much a possible as I worry I won't walk properly again. I can still only do the stairs in the way they teach you and cannot begin to do them normally. I can only just in the last 2 days lift my operated leg a fraction off the floor has anyone else been this slow? So worried
