Hi @Lana firstly let me welcome you to the forum I hope you find the information and support you are after from our wonderful community.
I can see from your post that you are going in for a knee replacement in a couple of weeks and after any advice particularly related to post op pain.
The site is full of information and conversations, with this subject having a lot of content from others already available, as such see below a link to an information leaflet about knee replacements that may help you, and also surgery hints and tips.
Please feel free to search the forum for others with similar experiences and I am sure that some of our community will be able to help offer some useful suggestions.
Take care and I hope you feel better soon.
This thread should definitely be of interest to you:
Hi Lana I had a knee replacement end of october 1 make sure you take the pain killers about 20 minutes before you do the intensive phisio
2 religiously do the phisio given. I even had a tally sheet to make sure I did all exercises 3 times a day
3 The hospital I was in gave me a knee cryocuff to help reduce swelling I religiously used it and still do if I have had a busy day. I even bought the ice bucket to go with it.
4 get home organised to make sure you can sort yourself out with a little support.
