Total Knee Replacement and Pain Management

on 11/19/14 9:03 am - Collierville, TN

Well, the right knee has given it up.  I have had cortisone and synthetic cartilage injections for years and its time for a total knee replacement.   Pain management has become an issue.  I can not take steroids or NSAIDS due to my bypass.   Norco/Percocet tablets cause severe gastric burning and pain.   Those of you who had Roux-en-Y bypass, what did you do for your pain?  I walk 8-9 hours a day for work.  Thanks in advance for any advice!


Lots of 5K's, 10K's., 4 1/2 Marathons, 3 Sprint Triathlon done. 2 Olympics and my  First IRONMAN 70.3 September 2013 and First Full Marathon Dec 2013  !!!!!

Sadly, I take NSAIDS for pain control. I, too, spend all day on my feet at work (7-10 hours, daily). I am just waiting to book an appointment with my knee surgeon for cortisone injections. I have had both knees scoped in the last 9 months. As a result of being still, I've gained about 40 pounds and it MUST come off.
