Post op pain


Hi…had a full knee replaced done on Monday and by all accounts I’m doing pretty well. Walking round the house unaided and managing the knee bend exercises.

Need so suggestions about how to manage pain in the dark hours in the middle of the night. Am trying to sleep on my back but am very aware of how much my knee hurts which means I’m awake for quite a lot of the night. So feeling very tired.
