Hey all I recently had knee surgery and I'm not recovering the best from it... Its been a week today...The swelling is unreal and I still can not walk and the pain is almost unbearable for me... The doctor did not tell me none of this... he said I would be up walking the next day with no problems... and that was a lie...thank heavens my parents have been here taking care of Ethan for me...

I am really starting to get depressed from this... I dont know quite know how to bring myself out of it...

I cannot get the swelling to go down at all. Does anyone have any ideas? Im about wililng to try anything at this point I want my life back....

so please pray for me that my knee gets better soon and if anyone has any ideas on how to get swelling to go down fast and anything that will help with pain OTC...

thanks and love you all

Be sure you are following your doctors activity orders.  Have you started PT?  Ice allowed?  Elevate?  Do you need your Surgeon to check it?  Are you sure the incision site is not infected?  Tylenol is good....so is Aleve.
