Welcome Pickle! I am not versed on knee replacement surgery but I wanted to take a moment to welcome you to this exchange. I hope that someone with the information you need stops by shortly. You might also want to ask on our WebMD Knee and Hip Replacement Exchange. View Thread
Have you been to a pain management specialist? Have you tried any of the topical prescription medications? My mother has knee pain and her pain specialist has prescribed voltaren gel and it seems to work well for her. I don't know if that would work in your case of course, but it might be something worth investigating with your doctors.View Thread
