My mother (70years) had a knee (total knee replacement) surgery two months back. Her pain has continously decreased since then and there was time when she didnt take any pain killer for almost a week or so.
For past few days, she has again started to have pain in the middle of night while sleeping. She is always perfectly fine in day time and is able to walk properly without any walker or stick. She is able to manage whole house on her own with no problem in day. But every night at certain time, she starts getting pain.
One key thing to note is that my parents live in a very cold place and past two weeks they are experiencing extreme cold weather.
Can anyone comment if it is normal to have pain even 2 months after knee replacement surgery or does she need to visit the doctor? Unfortunately the she got the surgery done in far away place, so going back for review with that docotr will be long journey. Any advice will be helpful. Thankyou
