Back pain after knee surgery

Started by niniiris on 07/06/2012 5:04pm

Had total knee replacement on March 27. Knee has healed but now I have extremely painful sciatica. I;m hearing from others that this is common. Can't believe the pain I'm in. Even Vicodin has not helped. Have had two epidurals and due for a third, but still no permanent relief. Tried chiropractic, made it worse. Tried acupuncture, no help at all. Rubdown with Biofreeze at least 6 times a day - some temporary relief. I'm at wits end. So depressed and in pain all the time. Any advice???? Have always been a very active person and I feel like I've lost myself. MRI shows herniated discs, slight stenosis. Have never experienced such pain.
