Had an operation for was meant to be just my lcl (lateral collateral ligament) however when I was under they found my ACL (anterior crucial element ligament) had gone to and they removed some lose cartilage 8mm in diameter down to the bone from my meniscus. And then done something or other with a scorpion needle? Anyway they out a block in so my whole leg was numb for 3 days, pain was no really there, a little burning sensation when I put it down. But was in morphine etc. They sent me home with diclofenac, tramadol, omeprezol, and aspirin.now on day 6, and I've not really taken anything for the pain because it's not hurt, but now it's really like a constant ache and is actually hurting. Just want to know what's the pain gonna be like if anyone's gone through a similar thing? I don't really want to take all those tablets if I don't have to. Thanks
