Im Johnathan...usually post in the Pain Management community but...my nana had her left knee replaced last monday, left the hospital thursday and i havent seen any real improvement since then. The Dr. said after a few days she would be feeling better but she isnt, she is taking 10mg percoset and soma and valium every 4-6 hrs and still having awful pain i hate she's having so much trouble bc no way after this will she have the other one done
She called the Dr over the weekend and never got a call back and then again today called, they called and said they woud ask the Dr about more pain meds and would call backnaround noom...2:30,rolls around and no call so we call back and they say she may need to come in, transfer to see when to come on amd had to leave a msg, still no call back today! I have a hard time watching them treat a 66 yo woman in pain like this
Is it fairly normal for pretty severe pain at a week out?? what can i do to help her? im taking care of everything, im doing everything for her. Any advice is appreciated!!
