    bilateral knee replacement

    I was really pleased to find this site. Feedback from patients is extremely helpful. I had bilat surgery 10/17/2012. Spent 4 days in patient and then transferred to acute care facility for 10 days of rehab. My doctor, therapists, and nurses all say recovery/rehab "is different for everyone".After reading this site I do see some common threads that we all seem to have.
    I have a burning/tingling sensation when I lay down in be to go to sleep. I actually started after about 3 to 4 weeks after surgery. I feels like a heating pad on high and I cannot sleep for 2-3 hours. Pain meds sometimes help bu not allthe time. I cannot count on a good nights sleep. I have been told it is nerves that have been stretched during the surgery. I am taking a progressively larger dose of Neurontin. Anyone else the same?
