I'm trying to deal with pain from a broken sternum and head injuries in July, then in December I was cleared for a TKR the 22nd. I'm walking unassisted, but was suddenly yanked off the 5mg a day of oxycodone. My doctor, who prescribed this for 2 years, said I would become "addicted" (I'm not) and to double my dose of Lyrica (I can only stand 75mg a day). He thinks it's the fibro "wonder drug" and suggested I was just "depressed" and needed Cymbalta (I will never put another anti-depressant in my mouth). My PCP gave me Celebrex and said to "Go to the Pain Management Center. Those guys are EXPERTS!" I wanted to scream "Which part of TKR don't you get? It's only been 2 months and it HURTS!" My knee is throbbing, of course I have pain and flare, and I am trying SO hard to just get through this. I DO start aqua therapy next month, but is there anything non-drug related that will relieve some of the throbbing pain? I don't want to be spaced out or so nauseated I can't eat anything! I know other people have had this. What do you do? I also CANNOT keep myself warm! My body just doesn't retain heat! My "normal" is 96.8. Oh, to be out of pain for just ONE day!
