Yes, I had to trade in my Ultram for Lortab. Knees hurt quite a lot more than ankles or fingers do when they get operated on.
I felt like Ambulance Driver's golum..."It NEEDS the vicodin. It NEEDS the morphine. It is in PAIN!!!" And I truly was in tears when I had to get up and shuffle down the hall to the bathroom on the walker.
But that was yesterday, today I was able to sleep 3 hours in the afternoon. I expect to be able to sleep 7 hours straight through tonight.
Thanks to those who have called or send email greetings for speedy recovery. I'll try to post again by Saturday, but it's still a challenge to sit up for too long.
