On behalf of our guest visitor, Sandra:
I currently take 40mg of slow release morphine daily 2x 500mg paracetamol x4 daily and oromorph as required ( all this for 12 months due to double knee surgery previously I lived on Tramadol and cocodamol).
My left knee is still very painful and I am doing the exercises but am still in pain even with the medication.my consultant has finally listened to me and thinks my ligament is overstretched so I am back in a knee brace and still exercising and am still In pain.
What is a reasonable amount of time to still be in pain for my op was 30/10/2015? My knees used to dislocate so he fixed them but turned my knees slightly in, since day one I have said my left knee feels tight, twisted etc but I cannot get anyone to listen. What do you advice regarding the pain and obviously getting someone to listen to me?
