Hi y'all! I just joined and this is my first post (yay me, lol). I had both hips replaced this year: the right one on 1/27, and the left on 4/6. I had a lot more hip area pain the first time. This time, it was starting to be such an easy-peasy recovery. But then my left knee started acting up. I've had 2 prior arthroscopic surgeries on that knee, and have a history of what my former orthopedist (he moved to another state) called "angry tissue".
Apparently, my angry tissue is having a temper tantrum. And now I feel like there's a knot in the bend of my knee, with shooting pains in the front. Topping it off, the pain meds I got this time gave me a horrendous itchy, burning rash. I have other pain meds, not as strong as the new stuff, and that helps. But the tightness is very annoying.
Thanks for letting me vent
