I sometimes feel everything is going along great then I wake up and feel pain everywhere. I know alot of the pain is from using parts of my body that I haven't used in a long time (never been into exercise). I am taking about 4 pain pills per day and do feel like I could use a few more but am really trying hard not to become to dependent on them because before surgery I was taking alot of vicodin es. I had my right knee done and am hoping to have left one done in May. I have some numbness on one side of the incision and a sharp pain on the inside of the knee cap. I also have alot of back pain from being bent over for so long struggling to walk. Even using walker and paying attention to stay straight my back pain is really bad by end of day. Does this all get better?
