Firstly, I understand no one can give medical advice. But any help in the right direction would be gratefully received.
I have a knee replacement followed by a manipulation last week. I didn't get to speak to the surgeon afterward but my discharge notes said I needed adequate pain relief. I am struggling with the pain and trying to bend it.
I called my GP and what I got was a lecture on opioid addiction. To cut a long story short she was as helpful as a chocolate teapot. She has prescribed me gabapentin. Looking this up on Google this is for nerve pain. I am not sure if this is the correct prescription. Has anyone been prescribed gabapentin? Does anyone have any insight if this drug is the right one? The GP filled me with zero confidence and I don't know if I should be going back to them for a second opinion?
Thanks in advance. 😊
